ROAD TRIP – FLORA + FAUNA

Surrounded by nature and rooted in agriculture, the Bay of Quinte is home to all sorts of plants and animals and when it comes to gardens, home-grown flowers and friendly farmers the BoQ’s got game there too.

Dahlia May Flower Farm – Each weekend the farm stand is chock full of seasonal blooms with buckets of gorgeous and locally grown flowers to choose from. Leaving empty handed is probably impossible.

1226 Stockdale Rd., Trenton

Palliser Downs – Have you heard? The haskap berries will be the next big thing, if you ask James and Audrey Potts. The couple, whose farm sits at the intersection of Frankford Road and Highway 62, started growing this lesser-known berry a few years back. A trip to the farm finds haskaps, strawberries, tart cherries, currants and Saskatoon berries they tend so carefully.

The Birdhouse Nature Store – A store that’s in a house that helps you bring nature home. While it isn’t a birdhouse itself it does have everything you need to be the Ornithologist you’ve always aspired to be. Located just outside the gates of Presqu’ile Provincial Park which just happens to be a hot spot for bird watching.

240 Presqu’ile Pkwy, Brighton

Corby Park Rose Garden – In the middle of the Old East Village in Belleville, this historic garden is a great place to relax. Be sure to find its namesake fountain, shaped like a giant rose.
