Catch the RAIN will help to implement green infrastructure projects in neighbourhoods with landscape design consultations that focus on integrating stormwater management techniques into your property. Through these one-on-one consultations with our RAIN Coach, homeowners will receive landscape design sketches that use green infrastructure techniques such as rain gardens, bioswales and permeable pavers to absorb and filter stormwater and encourage gardening with nature. Green Venture is piloting this new program in Dundas, Ontario.
Dundas experiences significant flooding events which carries polluted stormwater runoff into the nearby Spencer Creek. The collective action of homeowners implementing green stormwater infrastructure techniques can capture and filter rainwater where it falls, beautifying our neighbourhoods, and protecting the overall health of our watershed.
This project is funded by the National Fish and Wildlife Foundation Sustain Our Great Lakes program.
We are actively seeking Dundas homeowners to participate in this project! If you would like to be involved, please contact Catch the RAIN Program Manager, Laura Anderson at firstname.lastname@example.org
