About Evergreen

Evergreen is a national non-profit transforming public spaces in our cities to build a healthier future for people and our planet.


About Evergreen Brick Works

Evergreen Brick Works, our headquarters in the heart of Toronto’s ravine system, is a former industrial site that we converted into a green community hub where visitors can connect, explore and play year-round.

Our programs

By supporting great public places, we help solve some of the biggest issues impacting our world today. Our wide range of programming aims to tackle the climate crisis, improve health and wellbeing, reconnect people to nature and empower communities.

AI for the Resilient City

AI for the Resilient City is helping staff at Peel Region to better understand the areas that are most impacted by extreme heat events, informing the region’s response plan and empowering them to minimize the risk of heat-related illness.

Children and youth

Thousands of children and youth connect with nature in the city every year, gaining the knowledge and skills they need to be thoughtful leaders and caretakers of our cities in the future.

Climate Ready Schools

The Climate Ready Schools Pilot project at Irma Coulson Public School is raising the bar on school ground design, management, and outdoor play and learning in Canada, and sets the stage for more change in public space design in our cities.

Community Solutions Network

Thousands of people have learned from successful projects, case studies, and innovations across Canada that can be adapted to make cities and communities healthier and more resilient.

Community Spotlight

Last year, 23 free, accessible and community-centred programs were delivered at Evergreen Brick Works, ranging from musical performances to art installations and workshops.

Corporate Team Building

Our unrivaled venue offers the perfect combination of discovery and connection through our nature-based activities that will help your team bond and grow.


Our dedicated events team specializes in handling all venue-related logistics and work closely with our clients and suppliers to ensure a flawless event from start to finish.

Evergreen Garden Market

The Garden Market is a social enterprise that supports local vendors and directs 100% of its proceeds back to Evergreen, helping to run the site and support our free programming.

Housing Supply Challenge Support Program

Evergreen supports communities across Canada in their efforts to increase housing supply and affordability.


Our Saturday Farmers Market aims to connect people, provide economic opportunities and provide access to sustainable, local and healthy food and products to our communities.

Public art

Public art has been integral to Evergreen Brick Works as a hub for culture, learning and collaboration. Showcasing ideas through art enables visitors to learn, share and influence ideas that help build cities of the future.
