MEANDERINGS: The Shelter Valley Creek Circa 1930 photograph: courtesy Heritage Alnwick-Haldimand, from the Young-Munroe Collection donated by Shirley & Doug Johnston THE HEADWATERS OF THE SHELTER VALLEY CREEK START IN THE fourth and fifth concession of Alnwick-Haldimand Township. The stream winds its way through the watershed to its mouth on the shore of Lake Ontario, just east of Grafton. The creek is a rich spawning ground for salmon and trout that migrate up its cold waters in the spring and the fall. Archeological evidence of “fluted projectile points” or spear heads suggest that Indigenous People fished at its mouth 10,000 years ago. In the 19th century, the creek was a hive of industrial activity. There were over 20 mills and factories along its length – a plaster plant, flour and grist mills, a woolen and carding mill, a factory that made combs from cattle horn, a barrel factory, a wooden pump factory, a number of saw mills and a window and sash factory – that not only serviced the community but also provided employment for local residents. On the hot, steamy days of summer, the Valley Crick, as it was known locally, served yet another purpose: inviting kids of all ages to splash and swim in its cool waters. https://watershedmagazine.com/index.php/meanderings. . . . #meanderings #sheltervalleycreek #alnwickhaldimand #watershedmagazine #ourhistory

HABITAT: Willow Beach Field Naturalists author: Norm Wagenaar photography: Leslie Abram Photography 1953. Louis St. Laurent was Canada’s Prime Minister. Elizabeth Windsor was crowned Queen of England. Edmund Hilary and Tenzing Norgay reached the summit of Mount Everest. And much closer to home, Port Britain resident Harold ‘Kip’ Reeve and a group of neighbours founded the Willow Beach Field Naturalists. ONE OF THE FOUNDERS OF THE WILLOW BEACH FIELD NATURALISTS, LOUISE STEELE, reported in the club magazine, The Curlew, “In the late summer of 1953, a little group of naturalists who often happened to meet while strolling along the railway embankment that runs beside the marsh at Willow Beach conferred together along the pathway and decided there were enough interested people to warrant forming a naturalist club. The little group included Dr. and Mrs. C.B. Kelly, Mr. and Mrs. Harold Reeve, Peter Landry, Ted McDonald, Stella Bennett, Louise Steele.” They wrote the Ontario Federation of Naturalists (FON) to let them know of their intentions and, after a year of meeting informally, successfully applied to the FON for affiliation. Sixty-five years is very close to a lifetime. Most of that group of early founders, including Kip Reeve and Louise Steele, have long since passed. But the club, which bears the name of a property still owned by the Reeve family, carries on and its legacies have contributed greatly to the quality of life enjoyed by the residents of Watershed country.

Watershed Presents: INNOVATION: Entomo Farms - The Future of Food: The Future Of Farming author: Meghan Sheffield photography: Stewart Stick Though Entomo is known locally, it turns out that the Norwood bug farm is also one of the top cricket producers in the world. ANYONE FAMILIAR WITH ONTARIO FARM COUNTRY would presume the three long, low silver barns nestled into a backdrop of rolling green countryside were poultry sheds, and the operation a chicken farm. But at Entomo Farms, in Norwood, just east of Peterborough, they’re raising a different sort of critter for the grocery store market. The barns, in fact, are full of crickets – the next big thing in edible animal protein. Entomo Farms may just be the farm of the future. Jarrod Goldin, a warm and enthusiastic chiropractor based in Toronto, had always wanted to partner with his entrepreneurial younger brothers Darren and Ryan, who had already owned a series of businesses together. “We have this unusually tight, wonderful family,” Jarrod says. The Goldins emigrated to Canada from South Africa in 1986, and Jarrod has held onto his accent. “We owe everything to our parents. They always encouraged us to follow our heart and our passion no matter how disruptive or crazy it might seem.” The dream of going into business together didn’t seem likely. However, in 2013, the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations released a visionary research paper called Edible Insects: Future prospects for food and feed security. Then, Jarrod saw an episode of the investment TV show Shark Tank featuring an entrepreneur pitching the idea of cricket-based nutritional bars. Suddenly the distance from a health-conscious chiropractic practice to a cricket farm didn’t seem so far.

FENCE POSTS: Varmints at the Gate author: Dan Needles illustrator: Shelagh Armstrong True Confessions from the Ninth Concession WHEN THE SNOW FINALLY RETREATED THIS PAST SPRING, someone made a grisly discovery on a secluded lot at the edge of town. Scattered within a few yards were a dozen pet collars lying in the grass, all that was left of various cats and dogs nabbed and carried there by coyotes over the winter. Biologists tell us that edge communities produce the greatest diversity of species. In the band where the savannah meets the rainforest or the city meets the country, you will find creatures who have figured out how to adapt to both environments. Coyotes, squirrels, skunks, raccoons, rabbits, rats and mice all push their way into our lives as they try to make a living. It’s a natural instinct for us to push back.

CULTURAL CURRENTS: Anja Hertle author: Cecilia Nasmith ANJA HERTLE DESCRIBES HERSELF AS A HOARDER OF LOVELY BROKEN THINGS. The Grafton mosaic artist regularly combs thrift shops for dishware in bright colours or pieces with odd patterns, charming pictures, interesting textures, random words – all to be shattered or perhaps precision-cut in the service of her creations. Anja teaches classes for all ages and her own work provides an exemplar of the possible. She collects wee objects like decorative tiles and bowls of buttons, beads and bottle caps. She keeps bins and bins of broken things in her sunny studio, a treasure trove to draw upon. When a piece is finished, it becomes a game of hide-and-seek for viewers to spot that the tree trunk is actually a bent fork, or a scampering rabbit is clipped from a discarded Bunnykins plate. “I love putting the personal touch to it,” she said. Anja developed a love for painting after earning a degree in interior design from Ryerson University, but it could not stand up to her discovery of mosaic art in 1999. “It’s a dusty discipline,” she explained, “and you can’t paint at the same time.” “Mosaics won out,” she declared. “I haven’t looked back ever since.” https://watershedmagazine.com/index.php/cultural-currents. . . . #culturalcurrents #watershedmagazine #anjahertle #northumberlandcounty #grafton #supportthearts #supportyourcommunity

The Art Of The Basket author: Conrad Beaubien photography: @sashasefter Basketry is a timeless art that weaves cultures and generations together using traditional material from the environment. “EVER SINCE I CAN REMEMBER, MAYBE AT THREE YEARS OLD, I liked to put things together by weaving – blades of grass, dandelions – anything I could find,” Melissa Sherman tells me as she reflects on her childhood instinct to create form. Now in her early 60s and making baskets daily, Sherman turns to the rear view mirror to recognize how that early calling has shaped her way. Nellie, the family cat, snoozes on her lap as the artist’s hands orchestrate the high-ceilinged room of a re-purposed 19th century school house, both home and studio near Carrying Place in Prince Edward County. https://watershedmagazine.com/index.php/the-art-of-the-basket. . . . #culturalcurrents #watershedmagazine #princeedwardcounty #picton #northumberlandcounty #bayofquinte

What better way to spend a weekend than challenging yourself with a cycling tour in Watershed Country Backroads for Bicyclists author: Tom Cruickshank illustrator: Tim Zeltner WHEN I LOOK BACK ON VACATIONS WELL SPENT, MY BEST MEMORIES INVARIABLY INVOLVE A BICYCLE. I vividly recall my first organized bike tour: a sojourn through rural Vermont that covered about 70 kilometres a day, with picnic lunches and swimming holes along the way. Then there was the time I rode my mountain bike up Mount Tzouhalem on Vancouver Island. What a reward it was to ride down the other side. Best of all was a cruise through the sugar-cane plantations of French Louisiana, singing zydeco tunes as we rode along the bayou. Cycling is a wonderful way to get to know a place really well. It’s faster than a walk, so it’s never boring. And without the cocoon of a car, you’re free to breathe in the local air, smell the apple blossoms, stop on a whim and see things you might overlook if you were speeding by while driving.

FIELD NOTES: Summer Solace author: Terry Sprague photography: Helmer Nielsen I AM ALONE WITH ONLY THE SOUND OF NATURE AROUND ME - the diagnostic clucking of a chipmunk, the explosion of wings as a ruffed grouse takes off, the flute-like melodies of a wood thrush sifting through the trees. I am at Peter’s Woods, an 82-acre provincial nature reserve, northeast of Cobourg, just a short drive from the community of Centreton. It is an older growth forest containing mature hemlock, white pine, massive beeches and oaks, some of them hundreds of years old. The air is fresh and invigorating, punctuated with the fragrance of the forest – of leaves, mosses, and dank wood. I close my eyes and a feeling of absolute peace comes over me as my worries fade away and are lost in the morning haze over the Northumberland hills. - read more at : https://watershedmagazine.com/index.php/field-notes. . . . #fieldnotes #vireo #watershedmagazine #princeedwardcounty #northumberlandcounty #bayofquinte #belleville #trenton #picton #cobourg #trenthills #porthope

Watershed Presents: The Loneliness of the Long Distance Rower author: @zencanadiana photography: Ron Laroche Colin Sanders challenged himself unreservedly during his Million Possibilities: Solo Ocean Row in support of Community Living Ontario’s vision where people, like Colin’s son Jeff – who have an intellectual disability – can live with dignity. On March 2, 2018, Colin Sanders, a sixty-four year-old father of three from Port Hope, arrived in English Harbour, Antigua after 83 days at sea. He had rowed across the Atlantic Ocean from the Canary Islands – 4,000 kilometres – alone. Only a few dozen people have rowed the Atlantic solo. Hundreds more people have been to space; thousands more to the summit of Mount Everest. Yet Colin Sanders seeks no fame. He has no plans for a book, or a speaking tour. He has largely avoided media attention. Understated, and very private, Colin Sanders is a living reminder that achievement need not be coupled with notoriety.

A Burden Shared is a Burden Halved authors: @kellysthompsonwriter and Jane Kelly photography: @johnnycylam Maurice Rollins’ willingness to talk openly about mental illness and to share his own experiences, gives us hope and a better understanding of the stigma, the treatments and acceptance of an illness that knows no boundaries. TO LOOK AT MAURICE ROLLINS, successful Belleville-based businessman and philanthropist, you’d never guess that underneath the tailored suit and steely exterior is a man who was born on the kitchen table in Tweed in 1927. His family moved to Belleville when the world was on the brink of the Great Depression. He still remembers scores of jobless men riding into Belleville on freight trains, in search of work and knocking on doors looking for food. Despite his 91 years, there are vestiges of the determined teenager who excelled at Belleville Collegiate Institute, the streetfighter whose gang protected Charles Street, the spirited student who slipped out of the classroom window and headed to Lafferty’s pool hall for the afternoon, the strapping young athlete who ferried girlfriends on his arm with a mickey in his back pocket. Today, Maurice Rollins is a pillar of his community. He uses the fortune that he built from his hotel chain and his construction business to support any number of causes throughout the region.
