Directory of Atlantic Canada’s Non-Timber Forest Products Launched

A new directory, From Our Atlantic Woods, has been launched to market non-timber forest products in Atlantic Canada and the neighbouring state of Maine, USA.  Several forestry and agricultural organizations and agencies, including the Fundy Model Forest, supported the production of the directory, which is available in print form and on-line in both English and French.  It lists more than 200 small businesses that are trying to promote their products and reach local, regional and international customers. The directory features recipes, photos and information on these non-traditional forest products and services.  Listings are being added continuously to the web directory. From Our Atlantic Woods is modelled on Buy BC Wild, the first such directory in Canada.  For the on-line directory, visit: www.fromouratlanticwoods.com.
