Dandelions, building a home and the power of speaking French: An Interview with Marion Coppleston

My interview with Marion is a beautiful twin to my interview with Laura, not only because I met both of them while staying in Marion’s home. Like Laura, Marion bought land in the Canadian Maritimes and built an off-grid home on it. And also like Laura, Marion traveled solo as a young woman, including in hitchhiking in Europe. Only Marion was doing it all a few decades earlier. In this interview she also speaks about how studying french and teaching industrial arts lead her to these adventures, as well as her involvement in choirs and PEI’s Earth Day Expo and Dandelion Festival.
