An ultralight flight by a man known as Father Goose will help marry two crusades to save farmland.
Durham Region resident Bill Lishman, the first person to fly information with birds and the focal point of the 1996 movie Fly Away Home, plans to fly his ultralight plane from Pickering to Melancthon for the Food and Water First celebration on Saturday, Aug. 18.
“Quarries and gravel pits and airports trump farmland,” Lishman said. “It should be that farmland is the most valuable.”
While Lishman is known for his aviation efforts, he is also a member of Landhttp://www.orangeville.com/news-story/4020445-farmland-crusades-unite-in-celebration/
