Depave Project


Depave Project Saturday, September 26th, 10am-1pm
Help transform the playground! We're making a huge improvement to the school grounds this fall by depaving part of the playground to add native plants and more trees.
All ages welcome, but due to the physical nature of asphalt removal volunteers MUST wear long pants and closed-toed shoes.
Depave will provide all tools and safety gear. Snacks and lunch provided.
For more info. and to RSVP go to: www.depave.org/event/peninsula 

Dedicated Peninsula parents and community members have been tediously working behind the scenes with depave.org to develop a plan to remove pavement and add more trees to the playground. Early in the 2015-16 school year, the playground will receive much needed shade on the south side of the south wing.  In late September 2015, volunteers will be removing sections of pavement to create tree wells along the south side. Later in the fall, trees will be planted.  On the west side of the playground, we’ll be removing more pavement to connect the existing tree wells. Depave has assisted with funding the soil testing, pavement cutting and disposal, as well as serving as a community facilitator. With the help of PPS, Portland Parks & Rec; and Peninsula parents Daniel Walker, Carrie Andrews and Monika Roxburgh, this little dream project is now a reality! We’ll be looking for volunteers early in the fall to help with the pavement removal and planting.

 Our Rain Garden is also thriving!
