Are you following the 100-mile diet? Circle Farm Tours offer you a chance to return to our agricultural roots. These tours are self-guided, but allow for you to see where our food is produced. You can pick up the guides at many organic foods stores in the area. With a bit of time behind the wheel, you might find yourself at a fish farm, a dairy, a garden centre, a corn maze, a berry field, an orchard or a pumpkin patch. You may see birds of prey, llamas, alpacas, turkeys, trout, salmon, or goats. All it takes is a sense of adventure, and a bit of time.
If you decide to take up outdoor activities, it never hurts to learn some basic orienteering—and it’s a great way to help your child learn what to do to stay safe in the great outdoors. And if you already own a GPS device for your car, you too can misuse high-tech gadgets to go find “Tupperware” in one of the world’s fastest growing past-times: geo-caching. Your children won’t be asking you “are we there yet” instead they’ll be begging you to find “just one more cache!”
