Garden Hothouse Operational

The walk-in Hothouse has been constructed.  Seedlings may be sighted on the shelves. In the near future flower seedlings will join the current incumbents. In another construction, shedders have laid the foundations for a storage shed. Needy families receive food parcels and the storage shed will aid this work.

Looking forward to AMSA Conference 2013.  Follow the conference on twitter topic #AMSA2013.  What factors do other shedders think are important to the long term vitality of the men's shed movement? The value of the evaluation process to sustainability generally is one factor that has special interest for our Keysborough shedders.

Congratulations Glenda and guys on your recent amazing achievements. This men's shed now has separate indoor places to woodwork, cook, learn and play. For the gardeners there are raised gardens and soon a Glass house. May shedders who visit from near and far be impressed.
