The County has officially proclaimed twenty-twenty as the year to gather. To gather a basket full of local produce, meats, and spirits from a local farm store or market. To gather your friends and family around a big table (or kitchen island), to celebrate each other and the local bounty before you. To gather around a restaurant table and appreciate the love the chefs bring to your plate. It’s the year of you, and your connection to this place through the food you eat and the people you spend time with.
The Beaver River Canoe Route begins north of Kimberley, and winds its way through open areas and wooded stretches, with several views of the Niagara Escarpment, ending at the village of Heathcote. Wildlife viewing opportunities are excellent, as is fishing. Short portages may be required to bypass log jams.
Parking is available at Access Point 1. The paddle from Access Point 1 to Access Point 2 takes you from Kimberley to Epping. This 10 kilometre stretch takes about 2 to 3 hours to paddle. This stretch of the river is rugged and scenic.
Edible landscape includes fruit and nut trees, berry bushes, unusual perennail vegetables and salad greens; designed to be self-fertile and low-maintenance (and delicious!). 10-5 Thursday-Sunday, May 15-October 11.
No facilities on site other than parking and signage, but the sights to be seen after a 15 minute walk through the quiet woods make up for that.
