Together We Grow is a 40-minute documentary sharing the story of a thriving hub in Aotearoa New Zealand that is helping to build resilience into its local community by growing, sewing, repairing, sharing – you name it, Common Unity is doing it!

Too many of our communities, in Aotearoa and around the world, are facing housing crises, food insecurity, social isolation, and more. In addition, the multiple impacts of the Covid pandemic and climate change are current and ongoing. How can we most effectively confront these challenges, and help our communities thrive in an economic system that leaves many feeling trapped in poverty?

Founder Julia Milne and her team have created a completely replicable model for developing strong, connected, resilient communities – a model that could be put in place across thousands of communities in Aotearoa and millions of communities across the world. They’ve proven it can be done, this film was made to help them share the story!
