The modern Men's Shed is an updated version of the shed in the backyard that has long been a part of Australian culture.
The Greenbank RSL Sub-Branch Men's Shed was officially opened on the 19th September 2012 by Logan City Councillor for Division 7, Mr Laurie Smith. It is located at 3/15 Corporate Place, Hillcrest adjacent to the Services Club.
So, what is special about Men's Shed? Most men have learned from our culture that they don't talk about feelings and emotions. There has been little encouragement for men to take an interest in their own health and well-being. Unlike women, most men are reluctant to talk about their emotions and that means that they usually don't ask for help.
The Greenbank RSL Sub-Branch Men's Shed was established in an attempt to address and deal with these and other issues related to men's health and welfare. The overwhelming response that we have received to date has proven the need for and the benefit to our community of the initiative.
Activities include woodwork, leatherwork, pyography, discussion groups, computer classes and photography classes. Activities are open to members of Greenbank RSL Services Club, Sub-Branch and the local community and provided free of charge.
