This blog is an introduction into what it takes to start a creative reuse center in your region. Stay tuned for our book, an expanded version of this blog, in October 2012.
Delighted to discover your blog. Nov 2011 a small group of us formed an incorporated society with a vision to engage with unemployed youth through a reuse shop and then add on further small businesses. Visit our Facebook page, Wairarapa Resource Centre. I will share your blog with my Board colleagues, staff and. Volunteers.
