Though they are both born and raised islanders, I first met Marcia and Darcy Beck many years ago in Halifax. She was getting her business degree, and he was completing an English/History/Education degree. Fast forward a few years, and they are now two of the co-founders of Canada’s first commercial-scale permaculture farm in Brookvale, PEI.
I’ve dreamt about PEI since I was a little girl. It is, after all, the setting of Road to Avonlea, a show I grew up on and continue to adore. While Anne of Green Gables was also a favourite, Avonlea really stuck to my heart.
