What’s a ‘depave’? Learn more about the project!

Join Reep Green Solutions and Sheppard Public School Parent Council as we transform an underused area of tarmac into a naturalized play space!  During the workday, we will work together to:

–  Remove remaining tarmac and associated gravel sublayer

–  Fill in the new space with healthy soil and mulch to prepare for Sheppard classes to subsequently plant trees and shrubs

– Clean up the Natural Area (prune shrubs, rake leaves, etc)

– *New* ‘Kids’ activities provided by Evergreen’s Neighbourhood Nature Play program

Refreshments and lunch will be available at the event but please bring a water bottle to stay hydrated. Dress according to the weather and be prepared to get dirty. We recommend long pants and closed toe shoes (bring steel toed shoes if able, toe caps will be provided). Families are welcomed to join, activities available for all ages.

Date/Time: Sunday, October 28, 10am – 2pm
Location: Sheppard Public School ( 278 Weber St E, Kitchener, ON N2H 1G2)
