In 2016, the Manitoba Eco-Network helped turn ‘Depave Paradise’ into a huge success! Over 100 m2 of asphalt was removed and replaced with native gardens, garden boxes for growing edibles, and a natural play space. This removal of a hard surface not only made Brooklands School more beautiful, but will also divert water from our local sewage system, allowing rainwater to naturally filter through the soil before going into our local waterways.

See how we did it in 2016 so you can help us do it again!
