Keep food on your mind and complete the municipal survey on parks and pathway bylaws.
Current by-laws state:
Parks and Pathways Bylaw 20M2003
The Park and Pathway Bylaw restricts gardening in Parks and along pathways, but the Director of Parks may allow it by permit. Individuals cannot sell or conduct business in Parks and Pathways without a permit. The Community Neighbourhood Services website says that individuals cannot sell/benefit from access or use of public land. I do not see that specific provision in the Bylaws.

(b) damage, dig, cut, disturb or destroy any Park Vegetation, whether alive or dead.

(a) plant, grow, place or modify any plant, flower or other Park Vegetation;
