FROM WEEDS WE GROW By The STEPS Initiative

September 4, 2020

This is an online event!

From Weeds We Grow engages the Rexdale and Humber Summit communities in exploring their connection to nature through a series of community engaged art and placemaking activitivations. Virtual workshops and and walking tours will draw directly from nature, while an audio storytelling component will invite local residents to share their memories, experiences and knowledge of Rowntree Mills Park, the Humber River, and surrounding green spaces. A series of community calls will go out in the late summer and early fall, inviting residents to take part in creatively reflecting on both the park and its potential. From Weeds We Grow offers a new understanding of the area’s natural resources; builds new relationships between neighbours through collaborative art making and storytelling; and encourages local residents to activate a park that has been somewhat forgotten.
