finding earth beneath the asphalt

The former Central Park elementary school ground in Dundas has been undergoing some positive alterations to its play areas, with the removal of some asphalt to create space for nature (in this case, trees).

Restoration like this helps us reconnect with the earth, and just as importantly, allows the earth to restore the connection to natural life cycles - rain can be absorbed into the earth, trees do their oxygen thing, and children at this now Montessori school get a better understanding of the connectedness that underlies our ability to thrive on this planet.

Do you know of a place that has removed pavement to make room for nature in this area? Do you want to get help to depave some property? Please get in touch with us!
