Reid Allaway is passionate about farming and appropriate technologies, ideally combined. A founding member of Tourne-Sol co-operative farm in les Cèdres, Quebec, Reid has been helping to build a successful CSA and organic seed entreprise while training future farmers and build cool stuff whenever time permits. In his work with the CAPÉ autoconstruction group Reid has found a fabulous combination of social and technical work that brings farmers together around the common goal of building tools to make their farms better while learning new skills and sharing expertise. Reid’s recent fascination with electric vehicles is threatening to take over his shop if not his life but he finds it so much more fun than diesel or gas engines. The farm fleet is gradually going quiet!
