The Nature of PEI

by Gary Schneider

I enjoy seeing nature close up and feeling that I am a part of my surroundings. It is not humans watching nature, but humans as part of the natural world. I admit to being more comfortable walking a forest path than shopping in a mall, but I do recognize that both are components of this modern world.

This past May, I could walk from my house in Tea Hill to the

The Brew

by Bryan Carver

Tucked in the rolling hills of central PEI, in the small community of Rose Valley, sits a rather innocuous barn that holds one of the best beer destinations in Atlantic Canada.

Founded by the father and son team of Hughie and Don Campbell, Barnone Brewery has been turning out some beloved ales since its inception in 2012. The Campbells saw an opportunity; use a portion of

The Shed Sessions

The Shed Sessions
Talking Bands

by Evan James Ceretti

A shed in Oakar Myint’s backyard has been revamped into a tiny music venue, which is now the home of the Shed Sessions PEI studio. It’s probably the smallest venue in town where you can experience the wide-reaching sounds of Island musicians.

The idea was conjured up by Vinod Ramachandra while he was watching NPR’s Tiny Desk concerts on Youtube. “This could be a

Meet the Cleavers

Meet the Cleavers
The Cove Journal

by JoDee Samuelson

Every year we add manure to our garden and every year we get uninvited wildflowers as part of the package. (“Wildflowers” sounds gentler than “weeds.”) 

This year a healthy crop of Galium aparine, or Cleavers, is springing up. If you have these guests in your yard you need no description from me. Scratchy stems covered with recurved (down-pointing) prickles

Gift of Island Poetry: Leon Berrouard

My Coffee in Aix-en-Provence 

Just past the Renaissance Cathedral
And across from the school gate
There was a small & warm café 
And that’s where I’d have morning coffee

I remember the narrow stone street
And the limestone buildings
As I watched the way things are
Drinking my demi-tasse of café noir

Before classes in the Université courtyard
I’d lock my bike and then go to a bench
And sit

The Guest Book: Richard Lemm

Re-visioning

A region’s identity is often shaped, fleshed out, and emblazoned by its literary writers. Literary works help create perceptions, myths, and the ethos of a region. And not only among readers, for the effects of memorable literature permeate a culture.

PEI is a prime example of this through L. M. Montgomery’s writings and, to a lesser extent, those of “The People’s Poet,” Milton Acorn.

Summer wish list

I’m Dining Out Here

by Andrew Sprague

There are so many places I want to go this summer I can barely decide where to start. From one end of the Island to the other, restaurants are calling out to me and my wallet to come pay them a visit, metaphorically, of course. So instead of focusing on one place to go this July, I am going to tell you about three foodie road trips I’m keen to take this
