Food in the Park - wild plants and education garden, Downsview Park

Thu Jul 6, 2017, Toronto, ON

Stewardship is the act of maintaining or improving a naturalized area, helping to ensure natural areas provide clean water, air, food and shelter. The Food in the Park program will explore connections between stewardship actions and food security through three main program elements: supporting native wild plant populations through direct stewardship actions, foraging for wild edibles, and tending to and harvesting from the Downsview Park education garden.

At Downsview Park, stewardship is fun, easy and meaningful!

• Connect with your food through nature
• Take home free food
• Protect your food through stewardship; give more than you take!
