ReNew Shifting Focus and Adding To Mission in Brattleboro

We are upcycling our mission and adding even more value to our community.

ReNew is a big idea with a big building. But with the economy becoming a small idea, so to speak; we are opening our doors to create spaces for other vendors, businesses, artists and nonprofits. We have a number of options and welcome a chance to partner with the rest of you.

“It's not what you look at that matters, it's what you see.” - Henry David Thoreau

We see possibility and invite you to see it with us.
