Last week I was lucky enough to attend an amazing dinner and wine pairing hosted by Bonterra Wines in partnership with Evergreen Brickworks and Café Belong in Toronto. Having been born and raised in Toronto, I had never visited the Brickworks and was excited to be able to do that while also trying out the onsite restaurant. Evergreen Canada is an organization dedicated to using urban areas to positively influence the environment and those living there. In Toronto, Evergreen has set up shop at the Brickworks, a former industrial quarry and brick factory that began business in 1889. Bricks produced there have been used to build tons of Toronto landmarks and visiting the site was like stepping back in time. Today Brickworks serves as an ideal spot to promote urban sustainability through farmers markets, farming initiatives, environmental awareness, and lots of local events like beer festivals, pizza nights, and parties.
