Program Title: Mushrooms from the Edge Beer from the Heart
Description: First up, Stephanie Lipp co-founder of Gillis Naturals tells us about how she and her partner Leo have launched a mushroom farm in Bonavista Newfoundland. Yes, devoted listeners, that’s the same place the Newfoundland Salt Company calls home. Next, we learn about how Harrowsmith inspired craft brewing and the dozens of reasons Ottawa is the beer capital of Canada.
Stephanie Lipp was an Ontario girl, born and bred, until she met her partner Leo, a Stephenville, Newfoundland lad. The two visited Leo’s hometown, Stephanie fell in love with the province, and when a chance to start a business in the entrepreneur friendly Bonavista, they jumped at the chance. Now their passion is bearing fruiting bodies, in the form of six different types of mushrooms.

Who knew that back in 1978 Harrowsmith Magazine just might have kicked off the craft brewing industry in Canada? Shawn McQua did and he wrote about it recently in Harrowsmith. And about the micro brewing industry of Ottawa.
