SEPTEMBER 25 & 26 Toronto’s about to get a bit more sustainable, thanks to the grand opening of Evergreen Brick Works. Named one of the world’s best geo-tourism destinations by National Geographic, this former brick-making factory in the Don Valley has been transformed into a mixed-use oasis with gardens, event pavilions, exhibition spaces and more, all designed with the area’s geological, industrial and environmental heritage in mind. Opening weekend features a farmer’s market, tours of the photogenic site, art installations, a community barbecue picnic, folk and jazz concerts and more. Bridging the gap between nature and the city, the Brick Works represents an exciting step toward sustainable urban living. 550 Bayview Ave., free admission; call 416-596-1495 or click here for more information.
