Home Again - Ian Petrie & Megan Williams
This year marks the 40th anniversary since the first wave of Back-to-the-Landers arrived on Island shores. Some call them rubber booters - hippies - draft dodgers - but many of us also call them friends. A group of a dozen of them have organized a reunion - for back to he landers - their children and some grandchildren and the Islanders who they connected with. Home Again 2012 takes place in August. There'll be food and discussions music and there are also legacy plans including an art exhibit, documentaries and continuing academic research. Two of the home again organizing group got together with Karen Mair in the studio - Ian Petrie came in from the country and we reached Megan Williams in Lunenburg via skype.
