On Tuesday the 14th. August 2018 we had the pleasure of a visit from Doug Mackie the founder of the first Men’s Shed in North America, the Woodhaven Men’s Shed in Winnipeg.
Over breakfast Doug (with the white moustache) filled us in on what is happening with Men’s Sheds in Canada and around the World.
Then we took Doug to see our project at the local Transition Housing garden. The produce goes directly to the kitchen. We derive a great deal of pride and joy from this project and it gives us credibility with our allies as we develop our Shed.
Then we took him for a ride on the miniature trains at Burnaby Central Railway. Well worth a visit for young and old. The steam trains built by the members are fabulous and a ride on the approximate 2 miles of track through the park is always a thrill. A jewel in North Burnaby.
