Something extraordinary is growing in the heart of Toronto this summer.

With the boundless enthusiasm of 21 Neighbourhood Park Rangers and 14 local partner groups, we are literally bringing nature home to the city.

To learn more, check out this inspiring video about our Homegrown National Park Project.

Our team of Park Rangers are bringing veggie gardens, plants and flowers to surprising places throughout the old Garrison Creek corridor — transforming unloved grey spaces into bee-friendly gardens and connecting parks, yards, alleyways and streets. See some photos here.

Want to help out? Support this fun crowd-funding campaign that is going to bring a series of Canoe Gardens to the Homegrown National Park. Lots of great perks for donating — including big discounts for urban canoe and kayak rentals.

Stay in touch by joining the Homegrown Facebook Page, and stay tuned for more awesome Park Ranger projects this fall.

It is great to hear about this project. I really look forward to seeing the process and people getting involve with this event. I would love to participate this event if time is available. Bringing more green into a city is a fabulous idea to increase the ‘green’ of our living environment which will also provide places for us to enjoy living in a sustainable environment or even places for other living things to stay. Hence, I hope more cities will proceed a similar project and spread out the idea of living green and the idea of sustainability.
