Australian friends/posters... 'shed culture'???
Nearly a year ago, a friend of mine pushed a book from Australia in front of me about sheds and "shed culture". These were mainly workshops (some quite sizable) where men could get together and work on or make things. And maybe have "a cool one" (as we call it in N. America) and talk.
I'm not sure... but there may be a function to all this which has a value in "permaculture" in the larger sense of the word. A community function. Certainly, men need a place to work on things, and men do need ways to get together among themselves.
And so, Australian mates, I post this in hopes of a reply, and of more information. Is shed culture still alive,oris it dying? Is it still a good thing, in this, our new age of sophistication? What do you know and think?
Good on ya,
