App Description

Harrowsmith’s Almanac is famous for home-grown editorials on country living in Canada with a modern twist. Our four digital issues per year are delivered in Harrowsmith’s signature style. Harrowsmith’s Gardening Digest lives up to the reputation that made Harrowsmith magazine so popular among avid gardeners. From organic vegetable growing to spectacular gardens, it inspires and informs even the most serious gardener. The Almanac, our signature title, is renowned for its broad spectrum of editorials on interesting Canadiana, weather predictions, astronomy, and its guide to seed houses and nurseries. New to the mix is Harrowsmith Homes, filled with home improvement ideas, energy efficiency features, re-purposed buildings: Converted barns, churches and schools and innovative homes combining sustainability with style. My Kinda Town, our new Travel issue, covers the best quaint locales in small town Canada. Ideal for weekend getaways, or just to put your feet up and stay a while. Places rich in culture, history and tradition. It captures the authentic flavour of smaller communities, local events and foods and great recipes. Harrowsmith Almanac and its ancillary magazines satisfy a desire for a less hectic, simpler lifestyle. Written by Canadians for Canadians who currently live the country life or aspire to someday.
