Kia ora! After a lot of winter work behind the scenes at HempHub we are proud to announce some exciting developments from Hempster HQ!
With an uncertain world and a drive to make a positive change, HempHub was born out of the first covid-19 lockdown in 2020. The time and focus it fostered gave Eduardo the ability to build the website and connect with some of NZ's best hemp suppliers for launch in May 2020. Now in 2021 we find ourselves in a similar position where the year's challenges have given us an opportunity to recalibrate and emerge even stronger with a desire to improve the lives of fellow Kiwi's through our passion for hemp!
If you were at the iHemp Expo in Rotorua in May 2021 you may have met Evan and Katinka, the newest team members. These fellow hempsters helped roll out exciting, new products and continue to support and grow our venture as we strive to reach more conscious supporters.
Evan & Katinka are Canadians who have been living in Wellington since 2017. With a shared passion for the arts, outdoors and sustainability they are committed to creating a positive impact on their surroundings and what better place to make a home than the inspiring, capitol city of Wellington.
Evan is a passionate economist and videographer, emboldened by his Bachelor of Arts degree in Economics & Film Studies from his hometown's University of Alberta. His love of science and environmentalism led him to embrace hemp, and with years of sales experience he has ambition to bring NZ's growing hemp goods to market to a broader audience. You can follow him on instagram at @hempster_evan.
Katinka has been a passionate photographer since she was a child, capturing the natural world around her has inspired her to do what she can to help preserve our land. Witnessing the impact we have as individuals from our every day choices has inspired her to endorse the regenerative agricultural world of hemp. She brings years of experience in the arts, creative communications and retail management to HempHub. You can follow her on instagram at @aknitak
With the addition of these fresh faces, we are happy to let you know that HempHub is growing in Wellington! Currently we have embarked on a shared journey in the Welly Collective on Courtney Place, right in the CBD. There you can find our booth featuring all the hemp goodies and hempy information to your hearts content.
Spring is an opportunity to grow and HempHub will be delivering more exciting updates on the latest sustainable hemp developments. Stay tuned!
