Community Canoe Projects
What’s a Community Canoe Garden? NANPS has been working in conjunction with the David Suzuki Foundation’s Homegrown National Park project and helping to convert old canoes into pollinator-friendly native plant gardens. NANPS has provided funding and plenty of volunteers to assist in the creation of the canoe planters. Community Canoe Gardens have been installed in a number of parks, school yards etc. The photographs below are from a planting that took place in July, 2014 in Toronto's Stanley Park.
