Pugwash is an exciting and vibrant village on the North Shore of Nova Scotia offering a variety of activities. Shoppers have a selection of unusual gift stores including Seagull Pewter and Basic Spirit outlets. For art lovers we have The Mixed Palette art group, the Jean Wallace Gallery and Horton House Gallery. Outdoors people can swim at one of our many fine beaches, hike our trails or golf at one of Canada’s top one hundred courses.
Natural elements abound, leaving first time visitors in awe. Even local people, who see seasons come and go, marvel at the natural beauty. Mild winters slide into spring then give way to endless summers ... warm water, beautiful days, and crystal clear night skies. Don't forget Indian summer. Its warm days and cool nights are perfect for enjoying stunning fall colours.

This is for people who work with food all the time. Volunteers at a community supper or BBQ require a different course which is free, shorter, but with no certificate, although NS Dept. Agriculture does encourage everyone to have the longer course. We will organize one of the short courses in the new year.
