Turning Pavement into Garden


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 and thus reduces 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 habitats for pollinators, birds and other wildlife.

We are now looking for volunteers to help us for the following two days:

  1. Depaving day – Tuesday, October 5, 2021 – 4 – 6 p.m.
  2. Planting day – Tuesday, October 7, 2021 – 4 – 6 p.m.
