In this episode of Bonded Voices, we interview Mark Winston, a representative from the US Men's Sheds Association. The Men's Sheds movement, which originated in Australia in the mid-nineties has since spread globally. The movement aims to combat social isolation and loneliness among men by providing a space for them to connect, engage in activities, and support one another. Men's Sheds can vary in size and activities, from woodworking to community volunteer work. The organization welcomes men of all ages and backgrounds, with some sheds even incorporating intergenerational activities. Membership dues are generally reasonable, and there are options for both physical and digital sheds. The organization has been spreading awareness through conferences, media coverage, and grassroots outreach efforts. Mark emphasizes the positive impact Men's Sheds have had on individuals, providing a sense of purpose and companionship, especially for retirees and those facing life changes. He encourages those interested to visit the US Men's Sheds website to find a shed in their local area. https://bondedvoices.com #bondedvoices #brotherhood #mensissues #podcast #self #conpanionship #shesheds #usmenssheds #menssheds
