The Thorncliffe Park Women’s Committee (TPWC) is a grassroots organization dedicated to transforming and animating underutilized green space in Thorncliffe Park while also improving the lives and livelihoods of women and our community. Covid-19 restrictions underscored a lack of understanding and cooperation on the part of the City Parks Department to adapt to the community’s changing needs brought about by the pandemic. This workshop invites participants to discuss the barriers and opportunities affecting the role that parks play in supporting community economic recovery and resilience through park cafes, farmers markets, and small footprint / high community impact economic development programs.
