Doon Heritage Village, Waterloo, Canada

5 minutes by car (... 25 minutes by foot, lovely walk beside the Grand River...) from the Homer Watson House & Gallery is the Doon Heritage 'Crossroads' Village, a 'living' Mennonite village with 60 acres of sights & period structures. You'll find lots of ideas here for 'local produce' organic farming & rustic rural design. Walking around the 'compound' jettisons you into another time & place, everything is 'slooow' & pleasurable ... Great fun for the whole family and WELL WORTH A VISIT. ... Funny, ain't it, how 'what's OLD is NEW again' ...

Click 'here' for link to gardens at the village .... Also, if coming from abroad, note that complimentary guidebooks are availabe in English, German, French, Japanese, Portugese, Braille and large-print.
