Our Vision

For decades scientists have been warning us than humanity has been demanding more from nature than the ecosystem can regenerate, and finally on August 2, 2017, the Earth Overshoot Day, we reached the point when humans are consuming more ecological resources than the Earth can replenish. It is estimated that by 2030 human’s ecological footprint will become so high that we will need two Earth’s to support our needs.

Benefits of Regenerative Living

  • Not dependent on availability, capacity, or price fluctuations of central resource distribution systems (energy, water, sewage, food)

  • Health benefits associated with clean food production

  • Minimize carbon footprint

  • Make it possible to inhabit remote locations in harmony with nature

  • Expand natural environments through regeneration of damaged lands

WE PROVIDE TURNKEY SOLUTIONS FULLY-TESTED IN DIFFERENT CLIMATES.

Terragon Off-Grid designs, develops and implements autonomous buildings and food production systems independent from external infrastructural services.  Our self-sufficient spaces fulfill basic human needs of shelter, water, food, energy, waste management, and community, while fully respecting, and in many cases improving upon, the surrounding environment.

SHELTER STRUCTURES

We primarily use geodomes and pyramids which are among the strongest and most cost-efficient structures.
Mobile (both foundation and structure)
Greatest volume for the smallest surface area
Earthquake-proof, tornado-proof, hurricane-proof
Prefabricated: cost-effective and fast to deploy
Natural lighting and cooling system
Extremely durable and long-lasting
Eco-friendly materials: fire resistant, water resistant, mold resistant, impact resistant, and bug resistant
Multipurpose structures: working spaces, conference centers, showrooms, living areas, hotels and more.

AQUAPONICS

Aquaponics provide clean, diverse, nutritious food without negatively impacting the environment.

Flavourful and nutrient-dense produce
Unaffected by outside fluctuations
Independent from contaminated, nutrient-poor soil
Self-produced fish-food from insects, mycelium, and algae
90% less water consumption than standard agriculture

REGENERATIVE AQUACULTURE

Regenerative Aquaculture provides clean, diverse, nutritious food while regenerating the environment.

Water purification, restoration and recreation
Convert “unusable” low-ground into a productive food system (vegetables, fish and waterfowl)
High-yield food production
