About our shed

About Us

The Leopold Men's Shed commenced in March 2012 and we now have 65 members from Ocean Grove, Leopold and the greater Geelong area. We have movie nights, regular social dinners, regular sausage sizzles, and bus trips around the region. BBQs at various stores contribute a large percentage of our funds as we have to self-finance because we are not on Crown or church land. Our members engage in activities that range from card-playing, computer-training, pen-making, wood-working and welding, right through to assisting at community events and aiding charitable institutions and programs. We are very proud of our extensive garden that provides our members with various vegetables and produce. We will not do any work that would deprive self-employed people of income. The main thrust of our Shed's ethos is to be friendly, and support each other.

We are very friendly and welcoming. Come and have a look at us, and maybe join us.

Positive impacts


"I've found a great group of mates"

Mateship is an important pillar of every Men’s Shed – first and foremost the shed is a place for men to knock about with a group of like-minded mates.


“I give back to the community”

Men’s Sheds are vital community investments delivering programmes and activities that foster community spirit and contribute to building a more inclusive Australia.

Health & Wellbeing

“My health and wellbeing is better because I'm a Shedder”

Many shedders experience improved mental health outcomes. Men (and women) involved at their local Shed report increased self-esteem through participation and learning new skills; de-stigmatisation of experiencing mental health and de-stigmatisation of prevalent social issues related to mental health.

Watch — More than just a shed

The Australian Men’s Shed Association (AMSA) is the national service provider supporting more than 1,200 Men’s, Women’s and Community Sheds and is recognised as one of Australia’s largest male-based community development organisations.

AMSA was established in 2007 by a collection of Australian independent community-based Men’s Sheds to represent, support and promote the Men’s Shed movement. It was founded on the principle of sharing information between sheds and those communities wishing to establish and operate a Men’s Shed. It acts as a central hub for information exchange.
