Off the Grid

In 2006, Les Stroud produced this special documenting his family's journey to building an off-the-grid home.

The show chronicles the process of buying property and refitting an old farm house with solar and wind power, a raincatcher and the adjustments the Stroud family had to make to adapt to this style of living.


In this poignant and personal documentary Les and Sue, along with their two young children, share their experience leaving the civilized world and moving to Northern Ontario.
