Green Visions – Green Community Advocacy

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

Thank You!

Thank you for making our 2019 Annual Campaign a success. We topped our goal of $10,000 and raised $13,000! Thank you for supporting Greentopia’s efforts to use natural assets and the creation of green space to transform Rochester economically and environmentally.

Greentopia is Creating a More Resilient Rochester.

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

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 create energized placemaking that changes Rochester both economically and environmentally. 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 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.
