Keatsway Public School Depave Paradise Project

November 9 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm


Keatsway Public School staff, students, and Parent Council are working together with Reep Green Solutions to DEPAVE an underutilized area of tarmac and transform it into a naturalized area with trees and shady spots to sit!

On Saturday November 9 volunteers from the school and surrounding community will work together to liberate the ground from asphalt and install healthier soil and mulch in its place to kick-off the playground makeover.


This event will go ahead rain or shine! If all goes well the day’s activities will unfold according to this schedule:

  • 9:30-10:00am: Registration, Welcome
  • 10:00-10:20am: Announcements and Safety Training
  • 10:20am-1:00pm: Depaving in teams!
  • 11:30-12 noon: Lunch and refreshments
  • 1:00-2:00pm: Clean-up

What Should I Bring?

  • Refreshments and lunch will be available at the event, but please bring a water bottle to stay hydrated.
  • Dress according to the weather and be prepared to get dirty.
  • We recommend long pants and closed toe shoes (bring steel toed shoes if able, toe caps will be provided).
  • Bring a pair of old gardening gloves and a shovel if able.

Only free to attend for a couple of hours? That’s okay! We’d love to have you for as long or as little as you’re available.
