From March until June, the team will be touring the country, visiting six communities:

  • Ottawa,
  • Calgary,
  • Richmond,
  • Summerside,
  • Wolfville and
  • Montreal

...and encouraging Canadians to eat together and share stories about their favourite dishes.

Cityline host Tracy Moore and PC® Executive Chef Tom Filippou will be making a stop in Wolfville to tape a segment for the show during the Apple Blossom Festival.

Residents and visitors are invited to join Tracy and Chef Tom for a meet and greet, where they can share their own views on Nova Scotia’s food culture and talk to the duo about eating together as a nation.

Wolfville Nature Trust Lands

May 16th, 2017 Public access to the Wolfville Nature Trust Lands off of Forest Hill Road has been suspended until road maintenance can be completed.

Old Burying Grounds - Wall Repairs

Old Burying Ground on Main Street

Repairs to the Old Burying Ground wall will commence on Tuesday, May 16th, 2017.  The plan is to remove the wall one section at a time and store the stones on site avoiding the gravesites.

As part of the reconstruction two trees behind the western section of the wall will be removed. These trees will not survive the reconstruction and their roots are at least partially responsible for the deterioration of the wall. New trees will be planted in the area but a safe distance from the wall once work is completed.

Construction is expected to take 8 weeks and this section of the sidewalk will be closed to pedestrian traffic to allow the contractor room to work and protect the public.

The contractor is well aware of the historical significance of the site and will make every effort to respect the property and not disturb any of the gravesites.

The public can access the burying ground during construction from Clock Park.
