Little City Farm in National Geographic Traveler Magazine
We are excited (and honoured) to be featured in a very small way in the September 2009 issue of National Geographic Traveler magazine, which highlights our B&B as a unique, eco-friendly and affordable place to stay. We're on page 41, under the heading "Stays under $150". Not sure this little article will be available online, but the website for the magazine is: http://traveler.nationalgeographic.com/
Here's what Lauren Carter wrote about us:
Handpicked flowers and organic homemade soaps and shampoos sweeten the air in a private suite in this hundred-year-old home in Kitchener, Ontario. Located on the second floor, the roomy guest quarters overlook a greenhouse and vegetable garden, where shiitake mushrooms grow on a log set in the shade, and tomatoes sprout from the soil. Breakfast features herb-sutffed omelets, spelt pancakes, preserved cherries, homemade yogurt, and bread made from locally milled flour. The farm, a short walk or bike ride from downtown Kitchener and Waterloo, hosts workshops on beekeeping, herbal crafts, and gardening.
