The Shed Quarters
Since early 2017 Rhubarb Farm has been running a carpentry and woodworking project now called the Rhubarb Wood Shed. Some days a week it is used by our young people to come in and learn basic carpentry skills. We welcome men and women who would like to come and do some woodwork, to contact us and get involved.
Men in Sheds
Men in Sheds operates on a Monday for older socially isolated men to come and work together doing various carpentry activities. They make furniture (indoor and outdoor) on a commissioned basis, repair items around the Farm and make specific orders for things that the Farm needs as well as making and repairing items for themselves.
"It gives me an interest outside the home, which means I have to get out. I get depression so it's hard to get out. I’m working in Men in Sheds, and I’d like to do more horticulture. At present the Farm helps me emotionally. I accept that physically I am limited but can help in various other ways."
Peter, aged 78
The Marigold Club
(Women in Sheds)
Our Marigold Club for women has not re-started since COVID but, if a group of women are interested, we would welcome their involvement.
