Giving Back: The Fine Art of Hooking up with Business | Paul Waldie

The Donors: John and Peggy Fisher

The Gift: Creating Business and Arts Newfoundland and Labrador

The Cause: Supporting local artists

When John and Peggy Fisher moved to Newfoundland from Toronto 25 years ago and opened an inn, they brought their passion for the arts with them. Both had been deeply involved in arts groups in Toronto; Mr. Fisher ran a theatre where Ms. Fisher, an art historian, worked as well.

They launched Fishers’ Loft in Port Rexton, 260 kilometres northwest of St. John’s, a 33-room lodge spread across seven buildings. The couple filled the rooms with paintings from local artists, with all proceeds from sales going to the artists. That was just the start.

Nature & Nurture

On the windswept coast of Newfoundland, a clever, contemporary Zone 3 garden feels right at home in its magical surroundings.

Wild and Windblown: Nature’s Gardens

Barbara Ramsay Orr picks six of the best places to visit Mother Nature’s handiwork. | Barbara Ramsay Orr | Special to The Globe and Mail

Just as modern tastes are calling for wild blueberries, wild salmon and free-range chicken, the taste in gardens is leaning towards the wild as well, for many of the same reasons. First, there is only one force at work. These gardens are Mother Nature’s handiwork, and no one else has muddled with the design or the input. Everything is naturally occurring and self-sustaining and raised without the intervention of cultivation or chemicals. Most of these gardens are remote pockets of idyllic peace, virtually untouched by man and far removed from noise, pollution and traffic. Plants and trees are indigenous, many of them having survived and thrived for centuries. These gardens are a promise of continuity and regeneration.
