Part of an international network, ‘Men in Sheds’ – a place to work collaboratively, share skills and learn to build with wood
WHAT IS ACTIVSHEDS?
The ActivShed has been funded by a generous grant from the East of England Co-op. The project has attracted an enthusiastic core group, which has already renovated the shed at the Pavilion on Halifax Road to use as their base.
WHAT TO EXPECT
The group plans to work on a wide range of projects such as building raised beds and cold frames, and smaller items such as bird boxes and garden obelisks. The team have already tried their hand at garden sofas made of pallets and a greenhouse made of plastic bottles!
Everybody’s ideas are welcomed and it’s a great place to work collaboratively and share skills. Other groups who would like to set up a similar project may like to come along to share ideas and see what we are doing.
In the next phase, ActivGardens is hoping to set up a women’s shed.
