High Park Stewards Session – April 13, 2014

High Park Native Plant Nursery Cleanup
Sunday, April 13, 2014, 10:30 am to 12:30 pm
Grenadier Restaurant, 200 Parkside Drive, Toronto, ON

It’s time to uncover the plants in the Nursery, remove some of the dead
stalks from the Boulevards Beds, and let the sunshine in. It’s been a
later spring than in the last few years, but perhaps we will see some of
the spring ephemerals (including Skunk Cabbage, Blood Root and May
Apple), as well as discover which other plants survived the winter.

You may go directly to the Nursery if you know where it is, or else meet
us in front of the Grenadier Restaurant and we will direct you.

All tools will be provided.

"Get murals, not graffiti!" – StART Mural Program

Posted on April 8, 2014

Is your property repeatedly vandalized with graffiti? You might be eligible for a new city program to create art murals in frequently targeted areas to discourage vandals.

The StART Support Mural Program is a year-long initiative that supplies up to $2,000 worth of materials, like paint and brushes, for art projects. The StreetARToronto Artist Directory can help you find an artist to hire. You, the artist, and City of Toronto staff work together to create a concept and figure out what materials you will need.

You can participate if:

  • the property is in the City of Toronto;
  • it has gotten at least one Notice of Violation for Graffiti from Municipal Licensing & Standards (search here); and
  • the mural will be visible from the street.

To get more information or apply for the StART Support Mural Program, visit toronto.ca/graffiti or email .
