How can we reach our 2020 Greenest City targets?

Provide rainwater catchments to those living in condos with balconies to help with urban gardens

While waiting for building codes to come into effect requiring rainwater collection and water efficient irrigation systems, this can be a simple way to assist condo dwellers in using less water when it comes to their own balcony gardens.

    Good to know - thanks! Glad to hear the City is already helping with this. My view would be to make it even easier for tenants. For example, I no longer own a car out of personal choice. Even though I could take the bus or borrow a car to transport a barrel to my home, this could still be perceived as somewhat inconvenient. I think the solution lies in making initiatives like this easy for people to adopt: arrange for property management companies to hold a number of barrels at each property for tenants who are interested, organize a delivery service, etc. The easier you can make it for residents to take advantage of services the City already offers, the quicker it will be for Vancouver to become green!
