Turning Pavement into a Garden: Join Us on October 5 & 7 !
Sheridan Mission Zero is partnering with Oakvillegreen Conservation Association on a depave project at the Trafalgar Campus this fall. We are planning to remove the pavement of approximately 100 square metres in Parking Lot 1a near Trafalgar Road. A new shrub garden will be installed.
This project has multiple benefits:
• Depaving will remove the impervious ground surface reducing the heat island effect of the area;
• The soil of the new garden will absorb rainfall, prevent flooding and reduce stormwater pollution; and
• The new garden will provide natural habitats for pollinators, birds and other wildlife.
We are now looking for volunteers to help us in the following two days:
Depaving day - Tuesday, October 5, 2021 – 4 – 6 p.m.
Planting day: Thursday, October 7, 2021 – 4 – 6 p.m.
If you are planning to join us, please register below. And we will send you a reminder email prior to the event day.
For any questions, feel free to email us at email@example.com
Hope to see you there!
