Summer Living

Summer Living: 

In April, we showed you how to Plan for Growth and start a garden. Now, in the peak of summer, it is time to enjoy the fruits (and vegetables) of our labours. In Ontario, we are fortunate to have rich soil and a good growing climate with lots of produce available, especially in August.

If you’ve spent the last few months ignoring the recommendations of Canada's Food Guide and instead binged on junk food, now’s the time to try something fresh. Explore the curated galleries below: first find out what is grown here, then dive into dishes and recipes you can make yourself and finally read about the KW food scene.

The Locavore

Serve up some savoury dishes on the patio, the porch or the living room floor and set the mood with these tunes. Songs on this jazzy summer list will get you thinking about local foods.
