With help from developers like Brendan Charters from Eurodale Developments to Farmers’ Market vendor Vickie’s Veggies, watch how the seed of an idea turned into reality for this couple.

Evergreen is a national not-for-profit that has been working to restore the connection between Canada’s cities and the natural environment. For more information visit –

  1. Eurodale Design + Build is very proud to have been retained to design and build this project for the owners. Thanks To Evergreen Canada for profiling it and to Bell Local for shooting the video about the project. We truly appreciate the exposure in hopes of helping other families update their own homes and convert them into truly efficient and green buildings!
    We have done a couple of these "urban farms" now. This one in Riverdale, Toronto and another in Brampton, ON.
    Here are links if you are interested to see the before and after image galleries!
