We welcome readers to contribute — to add to this history. If you were a Prince Edward Island back-to-the-lander — or rubber booter, granola bar, or any other form of 'hippie-commie-weirdo-freak' – or a child of back-to-the-landers, or if your Island life brought you in contact with back-to-the-landers, we would love to hear from you.

You can send your own stories or let us interview you by contacting or filling out our contact form. We would also love to post your photos from that era.
