The Boomer Shed was 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.
We are proud to have this fantastic facility, 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 spaces 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 from Monday - Friday, 9:00 am - 12:30 pm
Beginners Woodwork classes are on Wednesday, 9:30 am - 11:30 am
Mobile, tablet and computer classes are on Tuesday & Friday, 9:30 am - 11:45 am
