MAxT Makerspace and the Cornucopia Project are turning their shared office space at 49 Vose Farm Rd, Peterborough, NH into a new hub for our community to work, learn and create.

Here's a note from Roy Schlieben, Director of MAxT:
Some of you might know that I've been working on a rather large project over the past four years -- creating a Makerspace in my hometown of Peterborough. The idea is simple -- we want to give people, particularly young people, a safe space to learn and pursue their creative passions.
We've had success growing our Makerspace. We attracted talented people and have seen a number of them start their businesses here. People have launched video production companies, developed robots, started second careers as artists, and created community events like repair cafe. If someone has an inspiration to do something, we've been there to help them get going.
We are ready to take another step. We are creating a new section of our space dedicated to nurturing entrepreneurs. We want to give them a workspace to develop new business ideas, provide a home for local business advisors to meet with them, and launch an incubator to help kick-start new businesses. It's a project we've been working on for more than a year and we are ready to launch...but we need a little help to make it happen.
The campaign for The Co is about creating this space, and I am asking you to consider donating to help us reach our goal of $9,700 in the next two weeks. We are already halfway there, but it is still a long way to go. You just have to follow this link and click on the giving level you are most comfortable with.
We even have some modest thank you gifts to claim!
The Makerspace represents everything that I believe in. It is about generosity, sharing, learning and growing. I'm so proud to see how far my efforts have taken things. But, I need your help. Please join me in supporting this worthy cause.
