About our shed
The Murraylands Community Men’s shed is an incorporated not for profit organisation and a registered charity.
The shed itself was built at the Murray Bridge Showgrounds with funding and land provided by the Rural City of Murray Bridge Council.
Membership is set at the Annual General Meeting each year with a $2 door payment when attending the shed.
The group will be participating in a range of community projects to raise funds, but members can choose to do whatever they wish within reason.
People can be referred for membership who may need companionship, or simply need somewhere to go to learn skills, or participate in worthwhile projects.
The Shed aims to provide a place of peace and fulfilment for all who join.
The group's aim is to provide a suitable venue to engage men of all ages, youth, indigenous, veterans and other groups in the Murraylands district to share, disseminate and preserve skills, abilities and other interests that benefit themselves and the community.
The group will assist men and women to be sociable and share each other's company while feeling productive.
The group will encourage men to learn new skills and upgrade those already known, using tools on interesting and productive projects.
The Shed is a place of peace and friendship where men can pursue and share hobbies, pastimes and interests to contribute to the community.

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.
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.
