A place of restoration, inspiration, and preparation

The Brooksdale Environmental Centre is a place of transformation. The flagship project of A Rocha Canada, Brooksdale is one of the most dynamic Christian environmental centres in North America. Brooksdale’s 18-acre property is a living lab comprised of forests, a threatened river system, organic gardens, and heritage houses. This unique combination of sensitive wildlife habitat and agricultural land makes Brooksdale more than a showpiece, but a place where critical environmental issues are researched, addressed, and solved. In addition to running a guest house for overnight retreats, we welcome interns and volunteers to join in our work.
