http://www.depave.org -- This introduction video introduces you to Depave and its DIY video series on how to depave your driveway and make it into a garden. Videos include learning how to use a power stone cutting saw to what types of plants do best in your new driveway garden.
Paved surfaces contribute to stormwater pollution, whereby rainwater carries toxic urban pollutants to local streams and rivers, greatly degrading water quality and riparian habitats. Pavement also disconnects us from our natural world.
The goal of Depave projects is the removal of impervious pavements thereby reducing stormwater pollution and increasing the amount of land available for habitat restoration, urban farming, trees, native vegetation, and beauty, thus providing us with greater connections to the natural world.
About Depave -- Depave promotes the removal of unnecessary pavement from urban areas to create community green spaces and mitigate stormwater runoff. Through community partnerships and volunteer engagement, Depave strives to overcome the social and environmental impacts of pavement with the use of action-oriented educational events, community stewardship, and advocacy to reconnect people with nature and inspire others. Depave is a nonprofit organization based in Portland, Oregon.
