Men’s Sheds in Boroondara
Did you know that there are four men’s sheds in the City of Boroondara, two of which are open to local residents? Kew Neighbourhood and Learning Centre is expanding its men’s shed, while Alamein Neighbourhood and Learning Centre has a men’s shed located at Alamein Railway Station.
Royal Talbot Hospital and Uniting Aged Care both have a men’s shed as part of their therapy programs.
Men’s sheds in Boroondara primarily offer woodworking but some also run cooking classes. Most importantly, they offer men, particularly older men, the opportunity to socialise.
In recent years, there has been growing interest in men’s sheds, and three of our local Rotary clubs are now working in partnership with Council to expand the number of men’s sheds in the City.
