On July 9th, 2014, celebrate the Homegrown National Park Project at an outdoor screening of the award-winning documentary Project Wild Thing at Fort York National Historic Site.
Working to establish a green corridor through the heart of the City of Toronto, along the former route of Garrison Creek, the Homegrown National Park Project is an initiative of the David Suzuki Foundation, with the participation of more than a dozen partner groups, including the Toronto Master Gardeners.
Together with keen local residents, businesses and groups, the project is helping to bring more green — gardens, trees, shrubs, flowers — to yards, alleys, streets, rooftops, parks and green spaces throughout the corridor.
With the intent of getting more kids outside and reconnecting with nature, Project Wild Thing is a feature-length documentary that takes a funny and revealing look at a complex issue, the increasingly disparate connection between children and nature.
At the July 9th screening, there will be food, drink, campfire and jazz. Free admission. Event begins at 7pm.
