The proposed Quarry in Melancthon (near Orangeville, Ont.), also known as the “Mega-Quarry”, was of enormous proportions! It threatened the region’s water quality, health, and pristine farm land. Through the efforts of many and with great publicity, including Food Stock 2011 and Soup Stock 2012, the Melancthon Quarry was officially cancelled in the Fall of 2012. A Stop the Mega Quarry movement was a success.
