Healthy Eating & Active Living

Celebrating food, active living and resilient communites

Maintaining your personal health is an important step in improving the overall health and resilience of your city and your community.

Learning how to eat well using local ingredients is the best way to stay healthy—with no fancy appliances, exotic ingredients or complicated recipes required! Get started today by attending one of our workshops, or by joining some of the other fun and educational events we offer to eaters big and small.

Healthy Choices

We want to help people in our communities eat well, be active and connect with nature. Healthy Choices is an initiative aimed at getting everyone from young people to seniors excited about the possibilities of healthy eating by offering programs and workshops that resonate with their interests and their goals. We works with community partners to share meals, celebrate food and build life-long skills, and invite a wide range of groups to connect with our passionate and expert staff.

Youth Programs

Visit the Youth Leadership page for information on Healthy Choices programming geared towards youth, including Aboriginal Visiting Schools at Evergreen Brick Works

Seniors Community Kitchen at Evergreen Brick Works

Seniors and youth come together with Evergreen staff in our classroom kitchen to share skills and knowledge, socialize and prepare seasonal, nutritious meals together.

Satellite Workshops in the GTA

Celebrate food and culture, and learn more about healthy eating, with workshops in your Community Kitchen. Evergreen's staff experts can come to you, so that you and your group can discuss and learn more about everything from buying healthy food on a budget, seasonal eating and how to integrate food gardening into your kitchen to the exploration of food justice issues and tips for how to fundraise for your space.
