Mens sheds

Spend some time 'with nature'

Eden Rose-Coppice

Mens shed

As part of the Eden-Rose Charity the Ipswich Community Shed is based at the Brickmakers Wood, close to the University of Suffolk...

“Sheds” are grassroots community activities that come in response to shared needs and offers support in areas of health and wellbeing. The Brickmakers Wood is part of the Eden-Rose group of woodland sites that supports the cancer network along with providing other community health support.

In our Charity men’s and women’s groups, students and dementia groups have enjoyed the experience of getting involved in useful work in natural settings over recent years improving their environment.

Following a successful trial project in Sudbury where volunteers helped restore town centre nature, including planting wildflowers, restoring broken benches and making bird and bat boxes, along with social activities, it became evident that a lot of fun could be had while doing something useful.

Eden-Rose Coppice Trust has developed this idea in Ipswich where we have large purpose-built fully fitted workshops including kitchen facilities and toilets.Brickmakers Wood is building up a community hub for men, inspiring positive action for a greener and healthier future by championing environmental action in Ipswich.
