Exploring the intersections of nature, community arts and wellness, From Weeds We Grow strives to deepen our relationships to the environment and accessible public space through workshops, park walks, storytelling, and performances rooted in Panorama Park.

From Weeds We Grow is an interdisciplinary public art project that aims to encourage creative expression while connecting community members, the arts, and our local green spaces and waterways. STEPS cultivated this project through conversations during the mural production of Under/Current, another STEPS interdisciplinary program in 2019 engaging the Rexdale community through co-created public art and storytelling.

In 2020, STEPS developed a Web App featuring an interactive map of Rowntree Mills Park. Visit the Web App here to meet the artists and facilitators who share teachings, points of interest, and collaborative artwork. Connect with community storytellers who share their experiences in the park and thoughts on its future, and hear from local spoken word artists that respond to the park through poetry and verse. In its third year of park exploration and community arts activations, From Weeds We Grow will continue to engage residents of all ages in Rexdale’s Panorama Park through community-led park walks and story circles, creative writing and art workshops, land-based and Indigenous teachings, alongside community exhibits and events.

Join us in the park this summer for an opportunity to create and contribute to the Web App as a participating artist, storyteller, and park advocate, while cultivating creative expression and community connection. Our relationships with nature and accessible public space are more important than ever! Share your From Weeds We Grow experiences on social media using #GrowWithSTEPS and tagging @STEPSpublicart.
