A river is more than….

A river is more than just a blue line on a map – it is the visible manifestation of a whole matrix of ecosystems and food webs and the water cycle that makes it all possible.  In cities  we are now beginning to understand that we need to design the whole system better by learning from the way that natural systems work.  Exciting new technologies are emerging such as green roofs and living buildings that look at our built environment in a whole new way.  We may not be able to dig the Eaton Centre to get Taddle Creek back, but we can, as residents and neighbourhoods begin to change the fabric of the watershed one garden at a time.  If everyone with a lawn was able to install a rain garden or butterfly meadow in its place there would be a significant measurable impact on the amount of basement and overland flooding in the city.  We are so excited to be bringing you the free RAIN Garden Home Consultation Visit and subsidized installation service with our fantastic team of installers and green landscapers
