About Circular Harvest


Circular Harvest is on a mission to reshape agriculture from a linear to circular agri-food system by 2030, partnering with mycelium to create environmental and economic value from waste in the gourmet mushroom sector. Co-Founders Chadd Bauman and Kyle Born met at the University of Waterloo at the Jack Rosen Pitch Competition on campus, both pitching similar ideas within indoor agriculture. Both studying Environment and Business and in their final year, they founded the UW Hydroponics Club with the goal to supply a residence cafe on campus with fresh herbs and leafy greens. They also hosted workshops, engaging students and faculty on the possibilities of vertical hydroponic technology and the future of our food supply in Canada as climate change makes field farming increasingly unpredictable.
