When: Mon, October 19, 2020 from 10:30 am – 12:30 pm Where: EduDeo Ministries, 621 Barton St E, Hamilton, ON Contact: Helena Cousins Contact Email: depave@greenventure.ca Open Volunteer Spots: 2
Join us as we transform the under-used pavement at EduDeo Ministries into a vibrant, green space!


Why Depave?

Hard impermeable urban surfaces interrupt the natural water cycle by preventing rain water from soaking into the ground. When rainwater flows over pavement it picks up a wide range of polluting materials, including motor oil, anti-freeze, tire residue, pet waste and cigarette butts. Green spaces help filter and absorb polluted storm water. Join fellow community members in tearing up the asphalt to make way for two stormwater management rain and pollinator gardens, native trees and shrubs, and naturalized seating areas.


What do I need to know?

In order to maintain physical distancing on-site, we will only be able to accept 10 volunteers at a time. We will be depaving the space on October 19, 2020, and planting on October 21, 2020. Both events will be from 10:30am to 12:30pm. To allow more people to have a chance to volunteer, we ask that you please choose to attend either the depaving event or planting event, but not both. Please register HERE if you would like to volunteer on the planting day instead.

Volunteers must bring their own masks and wear them at all times while on-site. You may remove masks to take breaks and to eat or drink, but must maintain a distance of at least 2 metres from other volunteers. Volunteering with members of your household is encouraged!

Please wear long sleeves and pants, dress appropriate for the weather (rain or shine!), and expect to get dirty! Closed toed shoes are mandatory, and we will provide toe caps for those without steel-toe boots. Tools, safety equipment and a safety briefing, as well as light refreshments will be provided!

If you can no longer make it to the event after registering, please alert depave@greenventure.ca as soon as possible!
