Then the supermarket boom came, and many of us stopped paying attention to what we eat and have not snapped out of it since. Organic diets, once a matter of course, are today rare. Luckily, thanks to Toronto’s farmers markets, we can make our lives healthier and tastier.

A Beautiful Horse Named Reese
We live in hectic times, and sometimes it feels like we are always running somewhere, unable to slow down and do anything for ourselves. According to statistics, over 34 per cent of Canadians feel trapped in their daily routine, and many of them describe themselves as workaholics. We spend most of our time indoors, often behind computers — even during our leisure time. I am sure we all have our own recipe for relaxation to recharge our batteries. One great option is horseback riding.

I keep noticing the “busy trend” everywhere. My colleagues and I are busy, and other people working in the offices down the street are busy as well, and even grandmas and grandpas are less relaxed then they used to be. We used to have clearer boarders between our working time and free time. We worked while in the office and relaxed and read a book on the train home. So I have been thinking… what would you say to reverting your working times back to what it used to be?

The barriers that define the boundaries of our properties and provide privacy and security from potential intruders need not always be made of wire or stone. Fences made of plants provide all the benefits of built fences — privacy, wind breaking, obscuring unpleasant views, and marking the boundaries of your land — and they also absorb noise and filter dust. Living fences are long-lasting, sustainable, aesthetically appealing.
