This annual event covers acres of farmland for several days to showcase plowing talents plus a whole host of rural activities and products.
There was an intermittent occurrence of rain, but overall, the Match was a success, a chance for rural urban interchanges. Looking back at antique machinery, seeing beautiful Belgian horses in the field, colourful gourds and all sorts of agricultural goods on display made for a fun day. Walking the fields from tent to tent on a sunny autumn day just came as an added bonus.
Next year, if the International Plowing Match is in your area, check it out!
The community in which I live has a track record for progressive steps in waste disposal.
Green bins are an integral part of the garbage disposal issue.
Since the colourful bins arrived on our street over a year ago, our garbage can input has reduced considerably. Each week, it stands side by side with the blue bins. Overall the system is working.
I am puzzled by some people’s reluctance to embrace a program that works so well.
Waste disposal can become a part of green living. Placing food scraps & other appropriate items into a counter-top container is one option. Also, you can Green the Newspaper! After reading your daily newspaper fold it into a compostable container for your indoor pail of material for the outdoor green bin. Eventually, this material that is picked up by the Waste Management trucks will become compost.
