Features:

05/ Hidden Gold: History, art, and adventure in Wells and Barkerville, BC This summer, if you fancy heading out on a road trip with stunning scenery and extra ordinary adventure, why not follow a section of the old Cariboo Waggon Road, a route of days gone by that leads to hidden historical tourism gems tucked in the Cariboo Mountains. - by Lisa Bland 06/ The Future of Tourism is Green Thirty years ago, there was no ecotourism. There was tourism, which meant going to unfamiliar places in a recreational state of mind, but the prefix “eco” was reserved for more traditional concepts like “ecology” and “economy,” and not at all for a gentler, and greener way of interacting with nature. - by Jessica Kirby 07/ Horsefly’s StoneRich Farm Our southern exposure garden has lots of sun but very poor soil—just a few inches on a bed of rock-studded clay. We decided we really wanted that location, so the answer was to improve the soil. - by Paul Hearsey and Sandy Mcie 17/ Eat, Drink, and be Healthy in Williams Lake When you want to treat yourself and your family to a healthy meal or meet a friend for righteous coffee, there are some excellent options in Williams Lake. - by LeRae Haynes 19/ Summer Solstice 2014 The wisdom of Indigenous cultures around the world tells us that during the cyclical course of each year we are presented with two times of great ‘turning’ in our processes—that we are given two moments or periods of time where the possibility for change both within ourselves and within our communities is seen as greater than at any other time. - by Ciel Patenaude 28/ Off-grid Checklist: ‘Tis the Season Blooming of the natural world in springtime and early summer brings us back to our outdoor pursuits, which in BC are often in remote locations. If we have the benefit of a seasonal home, a summer cabin, or an RV then chances are some kind of electrical power system is installed - by Ron Young
