Depave Paradise 

As a member of Green Communities Canada, the London Environmental Network has 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, stormwater retentive plants and pollination gardens.

If you'd like to support our Depave Paradise program, please consider making a donation by clicking here. Your donation will go directly towards the purchase of materials and equipment to transform these sites into rain and pollinator gardens for everyone to enjoy!
