As the landscape season comes to an end, LNS member companies took their staff to the Annapolis Valley for a local brewery tour on October 25. We visited Schoolhouse Brewery for lunch then visited Mercator Winery. After, we went to the new Sea Level Brewing location in Sheffield Mills and ended our day at Wayfarer's Ale Society. We made a quick pit stop before Wayfarer's to a local handmade treasure, The Faucet Fountain, in Port Williams. Each of the 113 faucets has their own story and they all work! Many hardscapers were on the tour and they definitely appreciated the detail and artistry.
Already planning our Winter Social, look for the invite in your inbox!
Special thanks to our sponsors, Nova Turf and Nutri Lawn

On Friday July 26th Landscape Nova Scotia their first 'Summer Social' sponsored by Nutri-Lawn. This was a great opportunity for members to tour Nutri-Lawn facilities and enjoy some lawn games.
Delicious food was provided by Grande Finales Café, snacks from Miller's Gourmet Kettle Corn and of course refreshments from Spindrift Brewing Company to keep everyone cool on a beautiful summer day.
Snaped Dartmouth stopped by to take some pictures.
A good time was had by all.
