After quite a bit of work and discussion with PPS Facilities we are happy to report that we have a go ahead for our Depave project and the actual cutting and removing of pavement is set for September 14, 2013. The project involves work in two areas of the playground. A rain garden will be created in an area outside of rooms 8, 10, & 12 (See image below). This will be planted with trees and vegetation to create a green space and to catch rain water runoff from the playground.
The second area will be smaller cuts to provide space for two raised beds outside of Rooms 1 & 2.
We are planning a community event to take place on September 14, 2013 starting at 10:00 am. This project will require quite a bit of help and support from our community and we are looking forward to a great turnout. Food and snacks will be provided to volunteers. More information will be sent home once school begins.
A similar project was held earlier this summer at Arleta. Follow this link for some photos of the event…
