The COVID-19 pandemic is still with us but we seem to be managing it fairly well. Businesses have reopened to some extent and more of our advertisers have taken part in the Autumn issue, although things aren’t back to the way they were before COVID.
We continue to publish the same number of big editorial features. Our cover story celebrates the inspiring work of the charity Maple Leaves Forever, which provides a rebate on the purchase of native maple trees to be planted in specific ways in rural Ontario. We had a great interview with founder Ken Jewett on his beautiful Escarpment country property.
Artist Duane Nickerson displays his striking artwork that is inspired by the Escarpment near Hamilton and Grimsby. Even better, he explains why he is moved to create the pieces in his unusual, signature way.
We prepared a feature on fall fairs before the pandemic hit, so we continued to publish our fun tours of last year’s fairs in Dundalk and Milton. These are just one of the countless events we’re missing these days.
We also take you on a virtual hike to Eugenia Falls in Grey County, a beautiful location but the site of unfortunate accidents this summer. Our feature gives you the imaginary experience while keeping you safe and sound.
Our two regular columns appear again, one on the great work of Escarpment Biosphere Conservancy, and the other about managing the gift of a rural property. This time, Mike shares his tried-and-tested techniques for tackling European Buckthorn.
