Evergreen Brick Works is a Toronto social enterprise that strives to fuse urban living with nature. It's part community center, part garden and part environmental playground for the whole family. It's open through all the seasons, and makes the most of Canadian winters with their beautiful skating rink.

"Operating income will be generated from office space and event rentals; Evergreen Gardens, a mission-driven retail space; a café, summer camps; parking and other revenue-generating activity," writes the not-for-profit on its website. "At the same time, Evergreen Brick Works will provide a social and environmental return to the community in the form of new programs and services that improve environmental quality and promote health and wellness."
