For more than two decades Green Venture has worked on a variety of water conservation projects such Depave Paradise, RAIN home visits, and Hamilton’s downspout disconnection program. The EcoHouse also demonstrates many green infrastructure features including established rain gardens, two types of living roof systems, a gravity-fed rain barrel irrigation system, a grey water system, a permeable Turf-Slab driveway, ecolawn demonstration, xeriscape garden, an Ecoraster permeable pathway, a variety of low-flow toilet options.
Green Venture’s primary focus at this time is on larger, community-based projects, and education about stormwater management, including encouraging the development of Low Impact Development (LID) projects. We are excited to announce the launch of Catch the RAIN, Dundas in 2019!
