Our midtown Mount Hope neighbourhood is one of the project neighbourhoods for the RAIN Smart program through REEP Green Solutions. The project began in summer 2016 with a huge contest and two residents won big incentives towards front yard make overs designed to capture rain water on their properties. There are more incentives available to Mount Hope residents throughout 2017 and 2018.
Not sure where to start?
Learn how to build a rain garden from start to finish … in a hands on way! Led by Becca Robinson, join a work party at 200 Waterloo Street, the second prize winner from the front yard makeover contest.
