Harrowsmith Spring 2018

Harrowsmith just got bigger with a new, full-size magazine edition

Harrowsmith Spring 2018

The spring equinox is always a welcome tilt in a new, warmer direction. Harrowsmith’s Spring 2018 issue is spring-loaded with content that will get you in the spring groove. As gardeners exchange clunky boots and snow shovels for hoes and Boggs, we gather anticipation in our pages too.  Whether you are anxious to plan your flower beds and blooms or revive some tired kitchen cabinets, we have the industry experts to show you how. We have recently welcomed Steve Maxwell to the Harrowsmith team as our Home and Property Editor. His cabinetmaking, carpentry and stone mason skills will be a monumental asset to our DIY section.
 
Here’s what else you can look forward to:
Put the ‘good’ in good morning with a savoury selection of breakfast-in-bed recipes like pumpkin pie oatmeal, asparagus and goat cheese frittata and bacon and egg bundles.
 
Too lazy to make breakfast-in-bed? We understand—that’s why we pulled together a guide to the best B+B’s in Central and Eastern Canada to hit the snooze button and get spoiled in.
 
How about exploring Haida Gwaii by kayak? Check out Kiley Torti’s sensory experience with fried egg jellyfish and tall totems.
 
Do you have four-legged helpers in your garden? Mark Cullen and Judith Wright both weigh in on how to create pet-friendly gardens and stop pet peeves in their tracks!
 
Readers nostalgic for Dan Needles and his pastoral stories will know to flip to the back of the magazine for more of his reliable True Confessions from the Ninth Concession.
 
We’re also introducing the clever cartoons of Jonny Hawkins—indeed, they are “Country Chuckles.”
 
And that’s just the beginning. Our contributors have been visiting greenhouses in Iceland, sheepherding, milking cows in Oxford County and even attempting a 100-mile diet, Arctic-style, in the Yukon. We even take you behind-the-scenes at the Long Point Bird Observatory where the team banded their one-millionth bird (a lucky Tennessee warbler).
 
We hope that our latest issue helps you grow bigger hydrangeas and bigger ideas. Our staples--Things We Love, Over the Fence and Bookshelf are all designed to help you find the novels, tips, blogs and neat stuff that energizes us—just like spring.
 
“Each issue of Harrowsmith reinforces the enormous change that can result from a like-minded community. Our readers and subscribers are all ambassadors of our brand—it’s our motivation to keep doing what we do, bigger and better each edition,” says Publisher Yolanda Thornton.
 
“The most fascinating part about being the Editor-in-Chief at Harrowsmith magazine is having the opportunity to curate content that showcases ambitious chefs, devout farmers, tiny towns, talented makers, backroads, storytellers, urban romantics, coffee shop owners, beekeepers, solar winemakers—all the remarkable Canadians who make this country the envy of all others.” ~ Jules Torti, Editor-in-Chief
