Still Standing

Comedian Jonny Harris is on a mission to find humor in, well, the funniest of places. He's taking a journey across Canada to explore small towns on the ropes and to meet the people who remain fiercely proud to call these towns home. By immersing himself in the adventure of their everyday lives, Jonny comes to understand their passion for these places.
In each community, he mines enough material to put on an original stand-up comedy routine for the locals. In the process, he shows us that no matter what types of hardships people may face in this vast country, Canadians love to laugh at themselves.

Edible Community Gardens

The Berwick Garden Club has formed to brighten up our community and increase food availability and awareness to our local residents. Within the last month several edible gardens have been planted around the Town of Berwick. Each garden is named after its content and contains the necessary ingredients to create something delicious! Gardens on the map include the Soup Garden, Salad Garden, Salsa Garden, Odd Herb Garden, Lion’s Purple and Yellow Garden, and the Harley Lawrence Memorial Garden. Residents are encouraged to visit the planters and help themselves to the wonderful treats. Garden maps can be found at the Town Hall and the Museum/Visitor Information Centre.
