Depave Paradise, St Anthony's Catholic school

Depaving Urban Area (Operatie Steenbreek)

Created at: 24 Mar 2019


The school won an “Ugliest Schoolyard” contest in the 1990s; a depression in the asphalt was named “Lake St. Anthony”. Two raingardens were dug and planted with violets. A tree grove was expanded and planted with dogwood trees, while a gourd-shaped space was planted with native thyme and mint. No more “Lake St. Anthony”! (2015)

Samenvatting (Dutch description)

Depave Paradise behandelt de verspreiding van harde oppervlakken in stedelijke omgevingen door ongebruikte bestrating op te ruimen met handgereedschap en deze te vervangen door groene ruimtes en doorlatende oppervlakken.
