As a member of Green Communities Canada, the London Environmental Network has recently launched a Depave Paradise program for the London region! The aim of the Depave Paradise program is to secure underutilized, paved sites of 100m2 or more, and rip out the asphalt and replace it with native, storm water retentive plants and pollination gardens.
We are currently planning our next Depave Paradise events - to be held in 2022 - in London and St. Thomas! Do you live in London or St. Thomas and know of a perfect site for our next Depave Paradise events? If so, please submit your ideas to Cole Taylor, our Green Infrastructure Coordinator, by October 31, 2021.
If you'd like to support our Depave Paradise program, please consider making a donation by clicking here. Your donation will go towards the purchase of plants and soil to transform these sites into rain and pollinator gardens for everyone to enjoy!
