The goal is to establish a permanent hub in the community based around an income-generating upcycling business that complements their activities in community food growing and waste
reduction. The hub will include retail and workshop facilities, a cafe and a welcoming place for local people to drop by, meet up, chat and help long-term development and grow the project’s volunteering and employability opportunities.
There are 3 phases to the plan and during 2019 phase 1 of the project will see engagement with the Green Hive community, volunteers and members, other Nairn residents and local groups, partners and other stakeholders to establish options for collaboration and partnership in the development of the community hub business plan and assess options for a building to house the hub.
The Pebble Trust are delighted to provide a grant towards the cost of this feasibility study and are looking forward to the business plan and the development of some shareable innovative ideas for similar projects.
