Community work

Supporting local

Our community

We are a growing non-profit enterprise and are working to support our community in a number of ways.

  • Education and Training
    Often for gender or cultural reasons, women | wahine have missed out on learning woodworking and DIY skills. We offer an unrivalled hands-on experience of power tools and machinery to address this and have a growing range of workshops.  In the future, we hope to be able offer accredited training too.
  • Empowerment and well-being
    Being able to create or fix something is remarkably empowering.  The skills we share are not only of practical use, but also highly supportive of mental well-being.  This has long been recognised by organisations like the International Mens Sheds Organisation including in New Zealand.
  • Environment
    We are partners of Urban Ark – Manawa Taiao and provide them with trap tunnels to help their volunteer groups with pest trapping.
  • Women in Trades
    We are also very keen to support women in trades and are looking at ways we can can do this.
