Evergreen

Evergreen is a not-for-profit dedicated to making cities flourish that wasevg-logo-eng-rgb established in 1991, their main goal being to create healthier cities that incorporate nature within living spaces.

So far they’ve helped build school grounds, community programs helping on water,housing and transportation issues and creating economical environmentally healthy social work-spaces for people to use on the daily.

Seen below is their Evergreen Brick works Centre, a community centre that was converted from the old Don Valley Brick Works, a heavily used factory that had created over 43 million bricks annually for use in Canada and in 1984 the building was abandoned and eventually Evergreen took a hold of it and created the centre as it is now. It’s open daily and hosts a variety of different activities such as nature based camps, gardening workshops, exhibits, holding conferences and even a weekend Farmers Market.

They offer volunteering options and accept donations and any help that they can get, if you want any news from them you can check out their website by click the evergreen image above.
