"Different grains, same loaf, rising and growing together." The Bread and Roses Co-op began operations in 1990 after renovating the historical space of the Vogelsang Button Factory. Today we are comprised of 66 apartments located within the two buildings; the heritage building, built in 1879, and the newer six storey highrise.
