Will that be considered a piece of Canada?

Would have been nice of them to mention the flower count's founder, Norma Fitzsimmons, who died last year at 97.

The flower count is sowing seeds? I don’t get it.

Hold on. I though the purpose of the ALR in our urban areas was food production and local sustainability. Why is the listing so open ended?

there are some farming or food production uses you can mix with other activities.

 

i could see like one of those axe throwing places but you aim at the live chickens etc.  

 

or just an abattoir where you can bring the whole family to euthanize the cows.  after you get through the corn maze.

 

the gift shop you must pass through to exit could have eggs, fresh chicken wings, steak etc.

“walking distance to shopping”

That’s a stretch.

Grandfather won a turkey at the fair. Kept it in the bathtub for a while, didn’t cut the head off properly apparently went running around the apartment complex bleeding everywhere. His wife wasn’t happy that she was expected to do the defeathering. True story apparently.

As Vancouverites are enjoying the sight of cherry blossom trees on the streets — and on their social media timelines — one B.C. woman is documenting the lengths people go in their quest for the perfect cherry blossom photo.

 

Designer LeLe Chan started the Instagram account, Cherry Blossom Madness, where she posts photos not only of cherry blossoms, but also the people trying to photograph sakura season.

 

"A lot of just people climbing on fences, sitting on front steps, not minding barriers and gates and just trying whatever they can to get their shots without being respectful to the property or the neighbourhood," Chan said.

I thought bamboo was one of those renewable plants we were all supposed to be embracing.
