On Thursday, January 31, 1957, the Parliament  proclaimed:  A Day of General Thanksgiving to Almighty God for the bountiful harvest with which Canada has been blessed – to be observed on the 2nd Monday in October.

Here is Autumn/Harvest. The second in the Days’ Walk Series to celebrate the harvest.  With scenes of some of the lush crops and farmland in the Portage la Prairie area and featuring commentary by Todd Giffin of Mayfair Farms, a musical  selection by the The Sharpes, shot near Haywood, and a very sped up video salsa recipe with veggies from the garden.

Turn it up, have a listen, take a look.


Produced in the Portage la Prairie area in the fall of 2011 local film maker William Plenty, the series originally aired on the MTS TV video on demand service MTS TV Stories From Home.
