The program recognizes the success of rural communities, farms and food processing sectors and agri-food organizations in Ontario. Their innovations improve existing products, create jobs and grow the economy.

For the past eight years, the family-run company has specialized in creating green roof systems made up of flexible, lightweight mats covered in hardy sedum plants.

The benefits go beyond attractive rooftops. Installing a green roof or wall also reduces energy loss in the winter and summer, provides sound insulation, reduces stormwater runoff and improves air quality.

Sedum Master also offers green walls, creating space to grow everything from strawberries to eggplant year-round.

Demand is booming. The City of Toronto, for example, now encourages green roofs on any building over 2,000 square metres. That means more jobs for cutting-edge companies like Sedum Master and a healthier environment for everyone.
