Come to Stratford early and stay late! Construction delays may be significant in summer 2019 so be sure not to miss out on any fun!

Hwy 6 to Embro/401: Replacement of large culvert Aug-Nov

Expect delays but road will not be closed. Hwy 7 detour is suggested as above, if there is an overlap.

Hwy 8 between Stratford and Shakespeare: In progress

Beginning in early June, stretches of this road between the west end of Shakespeare and the east end of Stratford will be reduced on weekdays to a single lane, with flag people controlling traffic in both directions. Delays may be lengthy, so please allow additional time for your trip. (Both lanes are expected to be open on evenings and weekends.)

Early Summer Foraging with Puck's Plenty

Pineapple Weed

When you think of weeds you naturally think . . . Garden Pests! Here at Puck's Plenty we don't regard this plant as a weed even though it can be found practically everywhere. Waste sights, sidewalk cracks, parking lots. We'll sidestep those areas and concentrate on Nature's grassy plains instead. This herb (because that's what it is) has a wonderful scent that translates into an amazing tea. Moreover, thanks to a chef we took out last year, we found that boiled in equal parts cane sugar and water, it makes an incredible substitue for maple syrup. It's absolutely delicious. Like many other wild edibles, after you see it for the first time you see it again and again, throughout the Summer. So bring paper bags, small knives, scissors and spades as we search for these along with wild watercress, day lily buds and flowers, wood nettles, not to forget fungi such as oyster mushrooms, ash boletes and pheasant back. They're all out there on beautiful trails only a short car ride from Stratford. 

Cost: $35/Per person

Location: Meet at 96 Birmingham Street, Stratford, 96 96 Birmingham Street, Stratford
