PEI Back-to-the-Land Reunion

Members of Prince Edward Island's back-to-the-land community are holding a reunion this summer. The organizers are putting the final touches on specific details, but the dates (August 3-5) and place (Mount Vernon) have been finalized. If you'd like more information you can check out the event website and the associated Facebook page.

In 2009 Alan MacEachern and I launched a digital exhibit dedicated to the Island's back-to-the-land community. (You can check it out here.) I've spoken to the reunion's organizers and we've received permission to attend. Hopefully we'll be able to collect some more great stories about this fascinating aspect of the province's history.
