Road to Georgetown Trek

In early to mid-September 2013, Bob Maher and Edward Wedler begin walking from Yarmouth, Nova Scotia to Georgetown, Prince Edward Island (over 500 km) collecting and sharing stories about rural people, communities and rural life. It is in Georgetown, a small community located to the far east of Prince Edward Island, that people all over Atlantic Canada converge for three days in early October to “redefine rural” at the inaugural Georgetown Conference. Follow Maher and Wedler efforts through their blog.

The Way We See It by Len “PD” MacDonald

He has been in the financial planning business for twenty years and currently hangs his hat on College Street with Success’N Planning. He is an avid runner having recently completed the Boston Marathon for the second time.
He is a keen observer of the human condition and writes short humour stories about everyday life. Rather than getting frustrated with things like checkout lines in stores or shopping in general, he has chosen to find the humour in these situations.

Baked in Nova Scotia

Hi, my name is Maureen.

Welcome to my new, fancy blog.

And by fancy, I mean that it’s actually on the internet where other people can actually see it.

I’m starting Baked in Nova Scotia as a means to combine a few of my passions: baking, writing, and all things local. My goal is to provide a collection of delicious, simple recipes showcasing local ingredients when possible. I’m very lucky to live in Nova Scotia and have access to so many great local products – and I plan to enjoy as many of them as possible with you.

I hope you’ll find some recipes that suit your fancy.

Maybe you’ll discover some new local products you haven’t tried yet along the way.

Or maybe you’ll just drool all over your keyboard looking at the pictures I post.

Either way, I’m glad you’re here.

Antigonishers know him for riding his bike, keeping bees and conducting a friendly quarrel with his adopted town and adopted church. He believes the glass is half-full. Unfortunately, it is chipped. He doesn’t love Canada, but would never willingly go back where he came from.
