About From Weeds We Grow

From Weeds We Grow is an interdisciplinary public art project led by STEPS Public Art and as part of Arts in the Parks 2021 Programming that explores Rowntree Mills Park through artistic, Indigenous, multicultural, environmental and community-based approaches to public space; connecting community members to each other, to the arts, and to the park.

In 2020, From Weeds We Grow launched an interactive web app of local Rowntree Mills Park celebrating its impact on community wellbeing, and encouraging enjoyment of the park as an inclusive and engaged public space to learn, create, and reconnect.

From Weeds We Grow is part of the Arts in the Parks program.

It has been made possible through generous support from Arts in the Parks, Toronto Arts Foundation, Toronto Arts Council/Funded by the City of Toronto, and Canada Council for the Arts.
