No written policies, plans or guidelines, but green infrastructure and LID practices are used

A brief description of the institution’s green infrastructure and LID practices:

While we don't have written policies, we did install a rainwater cistern that will hold 15,000 Liters of water. It is used the water to irrigate our soccer fields and within our new build, the grey water will be used to flush toilets.

This spring we are partnering with Red Squirrel Conservation Services for a Depave Paradise (http://depaveparadise.ca/) project. We will be removing asphalt and concrete and replace it with a garden. The garden will be located outside our Indigenous Gathering Center and will grow a three sisters garden, sage, cedar and sweet grass. The preliminary plans are attached.
