Why not drop in any time during the day from 11.00 a.m. onwards and learn about the many projects undertaken by the Men’s Shed.  They have developed a variety of composting initiatives and will be happy to demonstrate how waste can be reduced by the establishment of leaf litters, a wormery, and variety of composting methods. One of their projects for Feile Bride is to set up a bug hotel in the grounds of Solas Bhride.
