Dear Chefs and Friends,

On Sunday, September 27th, the David Suzuki Foundation will host the third annual Homegrown Park Crawl to celebrate the Homegrown National Park Project.

The Homegrown Park Crawl is a marquee community event that increases the profile of the city's amazing parks and green spaces. The Crawl brings hundreds of people into the green urban corridor along the former path of the Garrison Creek for a one-day food-driven community event.

Check out the wrap-up video from last year's event:

Our vision for this year's event is to have food vendor stations set up in Trinity Bellwoods Park from noon to 2pm and Christie Pits Park from 4 to 6pm to kick off and close the Park Crawl, with participants joining a musical parade through two parks in between.

We will provide a table, chairs and tent for each station as well as a volunteer to handle food tickets. Participating vendors will receive promotion through the Foundation's social media channels and will receive an honorarium to cover food costs.

Food tickets will be made available for purchase online as well as on-site during the event. Each ticket can be redeemed at any vendor station on September 27th. The aim is to have vendors provide portions with a value of approximately $5. The past two years each vendor was asked to prepare between 150 and 250 portions based on the expected number of tickets sold, and we anticipate the event will be similarly popular again this year.

If you are interested in participating in the Homegrown Park Crawl or would like more information, please contact: Megan Nobrega at We will follow up with further information upon your confirmation. On behalf of the David Suzuki Foundation, we thank you for your time. We hope and look forward to working with you!

All the best, 

The Park Crawl Committee
