Daniel Badiou and Katrina Jean-Laflamme both met at Polytechnique Montreal while studying for engineering in 2010. Dreaming, these two young adults just finishing university wanted to make a difference in today's conventional food system by providing consumers with the transparency they are looking for in today's misleading food system. Katrina decided to leave Montreal and move to Daniel's motherhood town in southern Manitoba to start their farm.
The founders built a tiny house to match their busy lifestyles. Built-in three months on the family farm and on a budget, this small, compact, 240 sqft solar-powered house follows them as they race to change the current food system. With its water tanks, batteries, and composting toilet, the "Tiny" can be self-sufficient for up to a month before needing a fill-up. Whether it's parked in a city lot or a forest somewhere, this little house has served them well so far.
