Eco Home Adventures

Like many small towns across Canada, Craik Saskatchewan was facing a slow extinction and the future looked bleak. Then they decided to try something really out there. They subdivided an area outside of town and sold the lots for $1 each. There was a catch. You have to build and live there, off the grid. Only green, sustainable housing is allowed, and no power.

Eco-Home Adventures follows the lives of these re-pioneers for over a year as they strive to build something unique, a model community to show that a sustainable village off the grid is possible.

Behind each dish are stories of survival as refugees seek freedom from society in conflict. The culinary diaspora of these countries are slowly changing perceptions by using food in a powerful way. We will see how they struggle to make new lives with their family recipes and how cities have been enriched by their presence.
