The shed is located out the back of the Linwood Resource Centre – Te Whare Taonga Nga Iwi Katoa – a community house located at 332 Linwood Ave, Christchurch. The LRC runs community gardens, sewing groups, morning teas and provides a really friendly place for people to drop in and connect with thier community again.
The LRC is run by a trust and is also associated with Anglican Care Community Development. Their ACCD page is here: https://accd.org.nz/about/linwood-resource-centre-community-gardens-te-whare-taonga-o-nga-iwi-katoa/
They have also started a facebook page here: https://www.facebook.com/pg/Linwood-Resource-Centre-935922199888563/about/
Being part of a community house gives us lots of opportunities to find ways to help out locals, but most importantly make use of the all day cuppa that the house runs. People from the house come to use the workshop, and we have a great place to hold meetings and set the world to rights.
