Petrie Island – updated

Many thanks to Katherine Forster for her photographs of the poems in a wintery landscape at Petrie Island. It was through Katherine, and volunteer members at Petrie, that I was able to plant the poems by David Groulx, Pearl Pirie, Roland Prevost, Blaine Marchand, and Sandra Ridley as part of rout/e. Katherine facilitated locations and planting activities; volunteers kindly built the ecology ‘display’ boards within which the poems are housed. There is more about planting the poems in the fall of 2014 here. I’ve posted the poems on the Petrie Island Poems page of this site; you’ll see quite a difference in appearance. It’s worthwhile taking a look at the history of Petrie Island while on the Petrie Island website – the Friends of Petrie Island have a good overview, as well as additional photos by visitors to the Island.
