Greentopia is Creating a More Resilient Rochester.

Greentopia’s been working for years to create a more resilient Rochester. This is our story.

Green Visions – Green Community Advocacy

Our Green Visions program proves that you can “go green” and also serve and build a community.

EcoDistrict® – Green Stewardship

We’ve created the FIRST EcoDistrict in Upstate New York. How can we steward our great resources to insure a green future.

What is Greentopia?

Since 2011, Greentopia has worked to bring sustainability, resiliency and “living green” advocacy to Rochesterarians. We’ve accomplished a lot in our few short years. Interested?

Green Visions

Green Visions is a workforce development program that takes place in the JOSANA neighborhood. We uniquely train 15 youth, (18-21 years old, for 22 weeks) in how to prepare for the work world – by working on an urban cut flower farm!

High Falls Ecodistrict

The High Falls EcoDistrict is the First Registered EcoDistrict in the State of New York! The High Falls EcoDistrict is a conceptual FRAMEWORK to reimagine our community and design a VIBRANT URBAN DISTRICT which emphasizes economic, social and environmental equity. The EcoDistrict will be a model for ambitious sustainability standards grounded in EQUITY, RESILIENCE and CLIMATE PROTECTION.

As we wrap up 2018, we want to show some love to our amazing long-term partners. Tommy Brunett and Iron Smoke Distillery have partnered with us for Dinner on the Bridge since the first year and were amazing hosts for Jack Baron's album release party in October.
The venue ambiance, cocktails, and staff at Iron Smoke are exceptional! We are lucky to have such dedicated partners. If you are headed out for a drink or need venue for a rockin' party, Iron Smoke should be at the top of your list!
