I'm the Poop Soup guy!!

short description

I have spent the last 11 years developing solutions to return agriculture to the circular economy nature designed, without performance loss.

Your Story


What are you passionate about? [public]

I am MOST passionate about getting people to really think. Critical thinking, with balanced inputs from differing viewpoints. Encouraging people to take radical responsibility for their own lives first, before trying to tell the world how to live theirs. I am passionate about giving back... I was mentored by some amazing people, setting my life on a positive course. I am now a mentor in several different programs.

Your Prize Concept

If you are selected as a Visioneer, you will develop a prize concept in collaboration with a company sponsor, fellow innovators, and the XPRIZE team. This may or may not be the challenge concept you propose in this application.

What do you prize? [public]

I prize decentralized, democratized food/energy/water systems, interconnected for education, removing hunger as a barrier to any people.

What Grand Challenge do you propose a prize competition should solve? [public]

Zero Waste Agriculture. A comprehensive program that includes the complete cycle, including health and wellness for the people and animals.

What would the world look like when the Grand Challenge is solved? [public]

Decentralized, demonitized and democratized food/energy/water and education systems, operated as living labs, interconnected with all others around the globe. No one will go hungry, and we will begin to return the planet to a state of natural balance.

    Congratulations Chris! Let's get back to nature - where waste is food!

    Congratulations Chris! After your time on the XPRIZE, please keep an eye on https://climatecolab.org/contests as it seems like you could be a good contender in future contests there (& might enjoy reading through some of the submissions to prior years)!

      OK, I found the right Ben!! I had the opportunity to meet Caleb Harper ay Masdar Institute in Abu Dhabi several years ago. I had a look at your group, and I am really keen to connect. If you send me an email, I will send you the Visioneering teaser we are using for the creation of the BC Centre for BioResource Innovation. It is a hotel for ideas to come and breed. We want to create Singularity University Canada, with a physical campus here. http://players.brightcove.net/775281566001/default_default/index.html?videoId=5157920265001

      Nice video! No offense intended by the pun, but it seems like you take what someone who didn't know any better might call a s****y idea (in this case, as a complement?) and turn it around to show where there's a lot more value than first meets the eye, and potential in unlocking that. XPRIZE is a lot about setting up structures to unlock hidden distributed potential for solving big problems.

      Also, on your idea for they physical campus/hotel: Are you working with Bruce Weaver by any chance? I see he commented just after you in the thread at https://herox.com/xprizevisioneers2016/update/420#comments with a video about his hopes for something kind of like that on an island in Washington.

      *Compliment, not complement (typo)

    Congratulations, Chris! Can't wait to see what game-changing XPRIZE you will work on!
  • Edward Silva Feb. 28, 2017, 11:28 a.m. PST
    Congrats Chris! Love seeing agriculture getting the FaceTime. So much potential!
  • Charlie Poitras Feb. 28, 2017, 11:14 a.m. PST
    Hey Chris!!! WAY TO GO! While I'm not surprised (since you're a total game-changer) I'm certainly THRILLED for you. Can't wait to connect and get caught up.

      Thanks Charlie... We are moving forward with the plan for the Branded Channel, and the crowd sourcing campaign. Lining up the dominos to insure a breakthrough success. Pebble Watch set the bar REALLY high, but I am thinking that the future of food could be bigger.

      I'm in awe! Are you sharing this via Youtube or Vimeo as well? I love how your method inhibits the spread of pathogens (e.g. parasites such as liver flukes, coccidia, lung worms, and hairworms).
