TIME well spent. It is at the centre of why we travel, time with friends and family, time doing business or just some time alone. COMING SOON! Guelph will welcome the Guelph Civic Museum in its new location on “Catholic Hill”, which is quickly becoming Guelph’s most popular tourist attraction. In 2004, the building which had housed the Loretto Convent was threatened with demolition. The City of Guelph agreed to lease the building from the Diocese of Hamilton and completely renovate the 30,000 sqft facility to house the Civic Museum, which was bursting at the seams and in need of additional storage and programming space. The new museum features the Royal City Families Gallery – an interactive set of displays for younger audiences located in a dramatic 2 level space. The Growing Guelph and Destination Guelph galleries showcase what is distinctive about Guelph and 6

The Eden Mills Writer’s Festival has looked to ancient literature to frame their relationship with local food and beverage partner, Wellington Brewery. Beer is mentioned in the oldest known work of literature, The Epic of Gilgamesh, which was written in the 3rd millennium B.C. In this epic, we learn how beer transformed man from a savage into a cultured man. The Eden Mills Writers Festival is proud to serve Wellington Brewery’s transformative brews during our event.

FOMM has always concerned itself with the sociopolitical aspects of food production as seen in our films, farm screenings and panel discussions. Planet Bean is a local company that is guided by the “moral economy”. Through fair trade, Planet Bean links producers and consumers in a meaningful way. Add to this the great cafe atmosphere and best tasting organic coffee, and FOMM is over the moon for Planet Bean.
