The Eastern Shore Cooperator is looking to hire a part-time reporter through an extension of the Canada Summer Jobs program. The position will start in mid-September and run for 12 weeks at 15 hours per week, at the current Nova Scotia minimum wage of $12.95/hour. Applicants must be between the ages of 15 and 30. You do not have to be a current student, or intending to go back to school, to apply for this position.
In the August 2021 edition of the Cooperator, we identified Kent Smith as the first president of the Musquodoboit Harbour & Area Chamber of Commerce and Civic Affairs (MHACCCA). Margo Hudson was the first president of the MHACCCA. We regret the error.

Never disturb Seamus during lobster season was a hard and fast rule that I had to learn. That first spring while I was getting Harmona ready to launch, I hadn’t quite understood it. I relayed messages and requests back to Seamus from La Have, until Seamus, whom I had not seen, said that he was exhausted.

The wild rose is a familiar backdrop to the Nova Scotia landscape; Rosa rugosa and Rosa canina are the two most common varieties, found in well-established colonies around the province. They flourish here as perennial shrubs, bearing sweet scented pink and white blossoms throughout summer and vibrant fruits in the fall.
