As their own home page says: Evergreen Brickworks is a community environmental centre that inspires and equips visitors to live, work and play more sustainably.
Among other things it includes an outdoor skating rink, a green wall, a farmers’ market, a restored brown site and dozens of ongoing projects. It has a store which sells environmentally friendly products, a coffee shop and an excellent restaurant. At the farmers’ market we bought all the ingredients for dinner including wild rice, dried mushrooms and organically raised beef. The less restored parts of the site celebrate the art of graffiti as practiced before the reclamation of the Brickworks began (see a future post) and the Brickworks’ industrial past. Dozens of amazing new art installations can be found including one showing all the watersheds of the city of Toronto.
