It’s almost time for the next Street Market here in Almonte! Our delightful Mill Street will remain open to cars, making it easy to drop your bags back at your vehicle. Stores and eateries down Mill Street will be offering sales, specials and treats.
This month we decided to feature one remarkable cheese maker: Glengarry Fine Cheese. They are located in Eastern Ontario just north of the village of Lancaster, on the shores of the St. Lawrence River. Margaret Peters-Morris & her team make delicious cheeses from the fresh milk of their Holsteins raised on the family farm. Margaret, a self-taught cheese maker, went from making cheese at home to running the most successful cheese shop in the region. So enjoy three of their their mouth-watering offerings!
Plastic. Waste. Excess. Where do we start? Where do we stop? How will a ban on single use plastics change our lives? Living, as most of us do, in the bubble of our lives, in privileged, green, spacious, abundant Canada, it is hard to imagine that dire predictions about the fate of human life on earth as we know it could come to pass. Global political action and cooperation is required. Yes. But that usually starts with many acts of local impetus, occurring globally. So where do we find our part?
