From Weeds We Grow is an interdisciplinary public art project led by STEPS Public Art (https://stepspublicart.org/) that shines a light on Rexdale through artistic, Indigenous, and community-based approaches. Inspired by the Humber River and the history of Rexdale’s local green spaces, we explore how plants are used to heal and nourish one’s spirit and our connections to the environment.
