>>Brooksdale Environmental Centre

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.

by Noah Guthrie The red wheelbarrow sank and heaved, dipped and bucked as I wrestled it downhill. A knot of grass tugged at the wheels. As I pressed through it, I plunged into a rut, [...]

Celebration!

October 23rd, 2018|

You don’t often hear the word “celebration” in environmental circles. Words like “loss” or “degradation” might be more common. Here at A Rocha, we hold the somberness of sad environmental news alongside the call to [...]
