Harrowsmith Summer 2017 COVER

It’s summer, so it’s time to Get Happy! Harrowsmith’s Summer 2017 issue leads the way, with great suggestions for your garden, DIY and recipes.

Mark Cullen shares his favourite blooms for growing for indoor arrangements, and Joanna Notkin serves up some delicious jam inspiration. We also explore the world of equine-assisted therapy, where horses are helping people heal and overcome life’s hurdles. Is a sustainable life a happier life? You bet! Read the issue for more on this and other fascinating stories.

Harrowsmith Spring 2017 cover

Harrowsmith’s Spring 2017 issue is your go-to resource for gardening from Mark Cullen’s guide to growing your own birdseed to a colourful Top 10 list of native plants to introduce to your garden. We also take a closer look at the birds and the bees with features on beekeeping and bird apps you’ll want to tweet about. Learn about wild edibles, high rise farming initiatives, green rooftops and how climate change is affecting the wine industry.

The original issue, our Almanac is the only truly Canadian almanac on the market. (Don’t be fooled by American almanacs masquerading as “Canadian”!) The Almanac features our famous seed guide, weather and astronomical forecasts and in-depth editorials and articles on topical issues.

Gardening is a subject that has been near and dear to Harrowsmith readers for many years. We are proud to collaborate with Mark Cullen, Canada’s “Gardening Guru” for this issue. Celebrate the joy of planting, growing and harvesting while learning the latest sustainable landscaping techniques. Harrowsmith’s Gardening Digest is the proud media sponsor of Canada Blooms, Canada’s largest gardening event.
