New community enterprise hub opens in Lower Hutt

Next business breakfast scheduled

A run-down former factory in Lower Hutt has a new lease of life as a social enterprise business incubator, thanks to an award-winning community organisation. The new Re-makery Space in Epuni is the headquarters for the Common Unity Project Aotearoa, a charitable trust that has been operating in Lower Hutt since 2012. It is home to projects including a koha café, honey production, a sewing enterprise that repurposes old corporate uniforms, a food share store and grocery co-op, and a backyard farming initiative. Re-makery Space will be officially open September 3. Founder Julia Milne said the Re-Makery is dedicated to providing the resources necessary for people to create prosperous, resilient livelihoods. It builds on the success of initiatives such as the Epuni Primary School garden and food production project. “It’s inspiring to be part of a community that’s taking the lead to create sustainable, inclusive solutions for itself,” Julia said. Over the past three months, Com mon Un it y P r oje ct
