Evergreen Brick Works Grand Opening Weekend

This Sunday I'll be volunteering at Evergreen Brick Works (EBW) as part of their Grand Opening Celebration, and I'd like to invite you to come down and join the party. Evergreen has been around for about 20 years and strives to make cities more livable by creating green spaces for residents to better connect with nature. The Brick Works site is a community environmental centre transformed from the old Don Valley Brick Works that supplied the bricks that built Casa Loma and numerous Toronto homes. EBW is a place where the public can learn about living sustainably.

Grab your friends and see what it's all about! On Saturday you can enjoy the Farmer's Market, games, the Grand Opening Ceremony, and the Big Reveal (guided tours through the site). On Sunday the day kicks off with yoga and meditation, followed by a big musical and cultural festival, a community planting event, and a public art opening installed directly inside some of the old brick kilns! As a volunteer I got a sneak peak on Wednesday night and have been giddy ever since.
