sustainable toronto for families

Earth Day is April 22nd, but here at yoyomama we’ve decided to dedicate the whole month to planet friendly happenings, products, and services. So in the spirit of celebrating Mother Earth we’re sharing some of our Toronto faves, which are green, local and sustainable.

With community gardens, a kids’ activities area, a dog park, Farmers’ Market, heritage buildings, a 16-hectare park with wetlands and hiking trails, and a focus on living more sustainably, Evergreen Brick Works is an environmental mecca – right in the heart of the city.
