To promote the transformation of overpaved places to overcome the social and environmental impacts of pavement. Depave engages communities and reconnects urban landscapes to nature through action-oriented projects, education, advocacy and stewardship.

Bottom Line for Portland

Each year, Depave engages more than 500 community members to create an average of eight urban green spaces that provide places to play, grow food and connect to nature close to home.

“Depave helped Human Solutions transform our Family Center parking lot into a beautiful green space with natural play areas, vegetable beds and a lush native garden. It’s a special place for families to gather, grow and enjoy nature at the Center.” —Scott Langen, Human Solutions development director
