A Journey to Sustainable Living and a Self-Reliant Lifestyle

Prince Edward IslandAt 19 years old, Luke Dinan is a writer, musician, bike messenger, blogger, farmer and, on Sundays, a community recycle coordinator. He hails from Toronto, Ontario, but his journey will ultimately lead him to 40 acres of land on Prince Edward Island, sustainable living and a self-reliant lifestyle.

Dinan’s current goal is to raise funds in order to pay off the land by September of this year. His end goal is to build an eco-friendly home made of natural building materials, run on renewable energy sources. He also plans to build a greenhouse supplying organic vegetables and utilizing permaculture design.

He will set off on Sept. 1 for a 500 km walk from Toronto to Prince Edward Island. The walk is to raise awareness and support for sustainable living. Dinan is a hard worker, already employing different resources to raise funds for his goal. He speaks of his different avenues below, including selling his music, the 2009 album “Canoe” and the upcoming “Long Water Chase.”

Dinan will be documenting his progress on his website: the walk, the building of his home, and the daily successes and failures of a self-reliant lifestyle. To learn about or donate to his cause, see his website or read his personal story below.

“My name is Luke Dinan. I am a musician and writer from Toronto, Ontario. For the last four years, I have been pushing forward on the path to a self-reliant and low impact lifestyle. My path has taken me from the concrete streets of Toronto to the vast interior of British Columbia to the Atlantic homeland of Prince Edward Island, where I am currently working towards relocating permanently.



What lies in Prince Edward Island is a crown of jewels 40 acres in size: a parcel of land with nothing on it not put there by her majesty, Mother Nature.
