March 22nd:  Depave Arrived in Seattle!

On March 22, 2014, over 40 Highland Park neighbors worked with Sustainable Seattle, Stewardship Partners and Depave to pull up almost 3500 square feet of asphalt – making way for permeable pavers and native plants!   This effort was fueled by the muscle of neighbors, as they worked together to chop up and haul the asphalt.  When it was all said and done, over 40 tons of asphalt was on its way to be recycled in South Park.  Read the press release.

The annual NW Green Home Tour is back! This year, we will host a sustainability stop to highlight our work at Highland Park Improvement Club (HPIC).   Join Sustainable Seattle, Rainwise, and Highland Park members to tour this  illustrative demonstration of innovative green infrastructure, with a cistern (a super-sized rain barrels), multiple rain gardens and a brand new permeable paver community courtyard. These features were envisioned and designed by the community and installed with the help of neighbor power - including a work day at the first ever King County DePave Day in partnership with Stewardship Partners! Visitors can interact with the new features, design their own rain garden, talk to RainWise contractors, and more. Tours highlighting how the features are spreading into the neighborhood will also be available.
