The Homegrown National Park
Last year we celebrated the creation of Rouge National Park — Canada's first urban National Park. This year, we want to bring nature even closer to home. We want to help create a crowdsourced, homegrown green space in the heart of the City of Toronto.
Inspired by authors Richard Louv and Douglas Tallamy, we have embarked on a mission to establish a "Homegrown National Park" by creating a vibrant green corridor following the former path of Garrison Creek, one of Toronto's most important lost rivers.
We will work with community organizations and local residents to enhance, restore and create urban green space. Together, we will get our hands dirty by planting native trees and shrubs, cultivating bird and bug-friendly gardens and growing food in backyards and balconies.
