Meet At The Shed™ is a place where men can come together around common interests.
Based on a concept originally developed in Australia called Men's Shed, the chapters provide safe environments where men can work together on projects of interest. Staying active and engaged, men use their talents and skills while establishing new friendships. Research shows staying active, particularly as we get older, provides both physical and mental health benefits.
The University of Georgia will be piloting the first chapter in Union County in early 2022. The plan is to open additional chapters later 2022 and early 2023.
The project is funded in part by a grant through USDA NIFA - The Farm and Ranch Stress Assistance Network (FRSAN). It is a collaborative project between The University of Georgia, Georgia Department of Agriculture, and The University of Tennessee.
Due to popular demand, we will also be hosting SHE SHED days! Stay tuned for more information.
