On October 28th, Ken Jewett and Maple Leaves Forever travelled to the York Region to participated in an event at the Clearwater Farm in Georgina, on the edge of Lake Simcoe.
The Farm is a community-based social enterprise that provides educational opportunities, demonstrates the wise use of water and field-to-fork organic farming principles. It is the flagship of the Ontario Water Centre.
Ontario’s Lieutenant Governor Elizabeth Dowdeswell also took in the open house event that showcased the farm. One hundred and fifty native maple trees were planted on the property in 2017 in recognition of Canada’s sesquicentennial, supported in part by generous funding from Maple Leaves Forever.
