Dave's story of Coffee, Community and Connection.
Dave Richards and his family built their own home out of recycled materials, and invite the local community in to drink coffee, be inspired, and above all, connect. Each week, smiles, stories and laughter fill the ‘treehouse cafe’ in Tighes Hill, Newcastle as neighbours become friends and friends become family. In this mini-documentary, we set out to find what drives this inspiring family of seven, and why building community is so important in our current age.
