Providing a Place to Grow
Evergreen is proud to recognize The G&L Group as one of our newest Partners in Sustainability! By providing sand, soil, mulch, compost and seating stones, The G&L Group have literally helped build the foundation for the Children’s Garden in Chimney Court.
The Children’s Garden in Chimney Court is the child’s domain at Evergreen Brick Works, where children are the architects of their world. The courtyard is an experimental landscape the children co-create with our play-learning experts through story and hands-on learning that reflects the surrounding geography, streams, forests and wetlands of the Don Valley.
Food also plays a big role in the Garden, where our food programs give children the opportunity to learn about growing fruits and vegetables. Here they get hands-on experience planting the seeds, caring for the plants, then harvesting, cooking and eating the food!
Thanks in part to the products provided by The G&L Group, children visiting Evergreen Brick Works have a space just for them where the priority is on first-hand experience and multi-sensory exploration.
