>>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.

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 [...]

Don’t cry over spilled… Yoghurt?

October 11th, 2018|

I didn't know an A Rocha internship could include learning how to make eight liters of yoghurt! But what better way to practice environmental stewardship than to cut down on plastic containers and [...]
