Who we are
Buderim Men’s Shed is a non-profit, non-commercial community organisation providing a safe and friendly meeting place for men to work on projects in the company of other men.
Established in early 2011 as an initiative of Buderim Rotary Club, the temporary home for Buderim Men’s Shed at Mill Road in Buderim was very generously provided by owners Dr. Bill Glasson and Prof. Claire Jackson. This became the setting for more than 250 members to meet, socialise and undertake meaningful projects, at their own pace and in their own time with the advantage of guided supervision by experienced tradesmen and professionals. We have since built our new home at 38 Advance Road Kuluin, where we continue to provide a welcoming place for our members to meet.
We are incorporated and affiliated with the Australian and Queensland Chapters of the Men’s Shed Association.
A major objective of the Men’s Shed is to advance the health, well being and social inclusion of all members through interest-based activities. We do this by welcoming men to meet and work on projects that are first and foremost personally satisfying and in many cases making an important contribution to the wider community.
What we do
Buderim Men’s Shed is a place for members to meet in a convivial atmosphere, gain knowledge and improve their health. It’s a place where they can learn or teach a variety of professional and trade skills, or just relax in the company of other like-minded men. The Men’s Shed also provides opportunities for members to undertake personal, Men’s Shed or community-based projects. Members’ interests span an extensive range of activities. They include woodwork, wood turning, toy making, metal work, small engine repairs, gardening, art and sketching, computing, discussion groups, French polishing, leather work, library, health and welfare group, music and instrument playing and upholstery. More activities to keep pace with membership needs and aspirations are being considered.
