Green Venture has received funding from the Hamilton Future Fund to expand upon the success of the WestMill alley project and revitalize additional alleys. In 2015, Green Venture teamed up with various neighbourhood groups to beautify the ‘WestMill alley’, located between Westinghouse Ave. and Milton Ave., north of Barton street. Over 130 native species were planted, birdhouses were added, a mural was painted with the help of local artists, and solar lighting was installed to increase pedestrian safety. An official call for proposals will go out in January 2017, but if you have an alleyway in mind that could use some TLC, please get in touch with Erinn at erinn.todd@greenventure.caimg_3699
