Upcycle Challenge

Habitat is excited to host our inaugural Upcycle Challenge, an event that will help provide families throughout northern Alberta with access to affordable home ownership. The Upcycle Challenge launched on August 15th at our ReStore in Sherwood Park, and features three local DYI influencers as they wield their upcycling skills! From October 3-17, their finished products will be displayed and auctioned online to raise funds for Habitat’s Buy Back program. We invite the public to participate in the event by joining us at the Edmonton Fall Home Show October 14-16 to vote for your favorite upcycled item!

We invite you to follow our progress here on this page or through our Instagram posts and stories.
