Evergreen Brickworks in Toronto is an environmental community center that has transformed the former Don Valley Brick Works factory into a showcase for urban sustainability. The mostly outdoor 12-acre site features a restored park and examples of green design, urban farming and much more. Welcoming visitors to the community center is an eye-popping, bright green hut, built from a shipping container and other reclaimed parts salvaged from the brickyard.
