A Resilient Library should continue to create an inspiring environment for learning and teaching by incorporating and learning from natural systems. The recent creation of the City of Toronto Green Roof Bylaw requires new buildings to have green roofs incorporated into their design. Rather than just fulfilling a requirement, the introduction of an urban community garden into this project will help foster a community-based learning environment. Along with creating and preserving green space within the campus, the proposed garden will provide a place for neighbouring community groups and programs to come together and offer opportunities for collaboration, and cross-disciplinary learning.
