Depave Paradise

Depave Paradise is a project of Green Communities Canada and local partners such as GreenUP, in communities across Canada. Volunteers and neighbourhoods have been (or will soon be!) removing unwanted pavement and planting gardens filled with native species in its place.

Removing asphalt and concrete at neighbourhood workbees is an exciting new trend that renews neglected urban spaces.
