Plimmerton Community Shed
The community shed was officially opened on Plimmerton Domain in March 2018. A lot of work had gone on behind the scenes for months to secure the site, organise leasing, liaise with agencies involved and to research the whole Menzshed movement throughout New Zealand.
The team started making environmental products to help the community including wooden pest tunnels for Pest free Porirua and nesting boxes for rare birds relocated to Mana Island. They also make a range of gardening gear and weta hotels to encourage these rare local insects to breed.
The shed team meets on Wednesdays and Sundays from 10am till 2pm and at other times by arrangement.
