Homegrown National Park Project
Inspired by authors Richard Louv and Douglas Tallamy, in 2013 the David Suzuki Foundation embarked on a mission to establish the world´s first "Homegrown National Park" by crowd-sourcing a vibrant green corridor along the former path of Garrison Creek in the City of Toronto.
In the project´s first year, our 21 volunteer Homegrown Park Rangers and 14 partner organizations helped to spur more than a dozen creative green interventions, from pothole planters and canoe gardens to butterfly friendly schoolyards and "parkify-ing" a residential street.
