  • Have spare time on your hands

  • Have skills others could benefit from


Join the Boomer Shed

The Boomer Shed is South Auckland's first community shed for both men and women of 50 years plus. Since the grand opening on 12 February 2015, the Boomer Shed has offered a space for older people to get stuck into a range of courses and projects and meet some pretty neat people at the same time.

Our facilities

We are proud to have this fantastic space at our headquarters in Manurewa, where our positive ageing communities can feel welcomed, safe, valuable, independent, connected and can contribute to the communities they live in. Plus, we have a lot of fun here too!


Our facilities include a fully equipped craft room, semi-commercial kitchen, impressive woodwork and engineering shed, a technology room, community garden and social space.



  • The Boomer Shed is open Tuesday, Wednesday & Friday, 9:30 am – 12:00 pm

  • Beginner woodwork classes are on Wednesday, 9:30 am - 12:00 pm

  • Mobile, tablet and computer classes are on Tuesday & Friday, 9:30 am - 12:30 pm

We provide a scrumptious morning tea at around 10:30 am, with home-made scones, tea and coffee.
