Prince Edward Island's people have always depended on the land and the sea for their survival. An independent and creative people, Islanders have harvested resources from what was around them. The "Harvests of Prince Edward Island" project utilizes the collections and resources of the Island's community museums to explore a number of the harvests which have been important to the Island's history. The major harvests represented include the Potato, the Malpeque Oyster, the Silver Fox industry, Irish Moss and Mussel Mud.
