The Common Unity Project Aotearoa
We aim to construct a purpose-built community cooking school, a beautiful working and teaching space immediately adjacent to our thriving community garden in Epuni, Lower Hutt. With this facility we will be able to feed Epuni Primary School’s 108 students daily, hold free community workshops teaching gardening and cooking skills, and provide a space for other community group and activities.
We have worked with local eco architects First Light Studio to design a large, spacious pavilion built around two recycled shipping containers. Containers purchased with Givealittle donations will be converted into kitchen, classroom and storage spaces. Our facility will model the sustainable use of clean, green technologies – solar power, harvested rainwater and grey water recycling – to our community.
