Bread Shed is our project aimed at tackling isolation amongst the older members of our community. It’s all about getting together, baking, chatting, and making connections. Run over a period of months, its proving to be a really beneficial experience for those involved.
The philosophy behind Bread Shed echoes that of the Men’s Shed movement, who state “Sheds are about meeting like-minded people and having someone to share your worries with. They are about having fun, sharing skills and knowledge with like-minded people and gaining a renewed sense of purpose and belonging.” In giving people the chance of baking together we aim to reduce isolation and feelings of loneliness, allowing participants to reconnect with the community they are part of.
Thank you Paula for the recipe attachments and a really lovely morning at the Bread Shed today. The rest of my day was so much more relaxed because of it and I’ve been able to let some of the other hassles today slide passed without getting uptight. I can’t wait for the next session.
