Meet Our Tiny Team!

Organizer

TOBI ELLIOTT
ORGANIZER & VISIONARY

Tobi wears many hats (when she can fit them over her dreds): community organizer and activist, documentary filmmaker, horse-momma and passionate advocate for sustainable development in her beloved community of Gabriola Island. She organized the first tiny house teaching course for Gabriola in 2016 because she saw the need for a new kind of housing solution for the island. She is dedicated to bringing tiny home education to other communities and keeping the conversation alive about how to live in balance with our resources.

Seeking content relevant for preparing youth for a sustainable future, Kenton became certified as a Permaculture Designer and then as an international Permaculture Instructor.

BEN GARRATT
TINY HOUSE BUILDER

Ben Garratt of Tiny Healthy Homes loves designing, building and helping people to create their dream home. After years of building, he discovered he had to reduce his exposure to toxic materials, and this propelled him into learning everything he could about natural building. He immediately started bringing aspects of natural building and Permaculture to every job. Ben uses his mechanical background, natural building techniques and love of community to create artistically-built spaces that will keep their inhabitants happy and healthy for generations. All of his projects are completed in collaboration with a team of talented and like-minded creatives and tradespeople.

We'd love to hear from you.

We are always interested in bringing a transformative tiny house workshop to new communities, so don’t hesitate to drop us a line if you think your town or district is ready to learn everything tiny!
