Apple Blueberry Pecan Crisp

A holiday recipe from Rebecca Landman at Landman Gardens and Bakery

Whoooooooooah! Winter Lock Down Alert!

At YDH, we love visitors, but we also want everyone to enjoy winter safely during COVID-19. During lockdown, it's important you and your family stay close to homewhile taking the opportunity to explore all the wonderful things to do in your own backyard. Don't know what's in your own backyard? Visit to re-discover some pretty cool activities all over the province while supporting your local businesses and communities. If you are lucky enough to live in YDH (we are biased), we've got some great ideas for you to hibernate in style, get active outside, learn something new and celebrate this awesome season...virtually or in-person.

Remember safety is a choice you make and we look forward to seeing non-locals again soon.

Please check with all businesses for updated hours of operation, prgogramming, COVID-19 policies, and restrictions.
