Homegrown National Park Project # HomegrownNationalPark

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.

In 2014 we are aiming to deepen the project and expand it to adjacent neighbourhoods in the Greater Garrison Creek area. Find out more at http://www.davidsuzuki.org/homegrown, and stay tuned by joining our Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/HomegrownNationalPark.
