About The Hub Foundation

The Hub is an office and restaurant complex on the corner of Barker and Templeton Streets in Castlemaine. The owners, Neil and Heather Barrett, have been involved in climate change and renewable energy projects for many years. In May 2014, they established The Hub Foundation Castlemaine Ltd (a not-for-profit company limited by guarantee) to further their work to help reduce the Shire’s – and the planet’s – CO2 emissions. Mark Carter, a graphic artist and long-time climate change activist, is the third director of the Foundation.

The Hub Foundation and its directors also support financially a range of organisations committed to action on climate change, including the ACF, Environment Victoria, Getup, 350.org and Greenpeace.
