 Earth People’s Park

If you were to pick up a copy of my personal biography, Turned Around, you would learn that I lived at Earth People’s Park in Vermont for about three years in the 70’s. Earth People’s Park, or The Land, was a wonderful experience for me in many ways. I look back on those years as instrumental in turning my life around. When I landed at EPP I was at the end of my rope. I had my 59 VW panel (which would be worth a LOT of money today!) and a few possessions- very few. I had nothing and was going nowhere. I quickly sold the van for a paltry sum in order to winterize a dome so I would have a space to sleep and eat. I was welcomed by loving caring people who had nothing to offer me but welcome arms, homes and of course mind altering drugs. None the less, we had a bond, a lasting bond. To this day I love that land (now Black Turn Brook State Forest) and pray for those people who taught me so much and cared for me as if I were family. As much as I loved the people, and believe they loved me, Christ Jesus loved me more and I learned to love Him more. If you want to know more about my experience at Earth People’s Park order a copy of Turned Around at Amazon!
