What is Greentopia?
Green Visions is a workforce development program in the Joseph Ave and JOSANA neighborhood. The program trains 15 youth, 17-22 year old in how to prepare for the work world – by creating on an urban cut flower farms!
High Falls Park & EcoDistrict
High Falls Park, now a project of ROC the Riverway, will use the existing EcoDistrict as its core. The High Falls EcoDistrict is the First Registered EcoDistrict in the State of New York and serves as a conceptual FRAMEWORK to reimagine our community. Greentopia is also working to expand the current EcoDistrict to the entire footprint of ROC the Riverway improvements.
