Have you heard about The Good Neighbours Tool Shed?

It’s a community tool library project based at The Food Centre and supported by Volunteering SA & NT.

This community led project will give diverse members of our community access and the ability to use tools, get assistance from other members of the community and through this, build resilience around common needs.

What on earth is a Tool Library you ask?

It’s like a library with books but the things you borrow are tools! We also have people assisting in the project to help you with practical judgement free advice, run workshops on how to do things around the house and save you money!

Upcoming workshops to hosted at various locations near you:

  • Using power tools safely
  • Fixing leaking taps
  • Fixing holes in walls
  • General repairs around the house
  • Pushbike repairs and maintenance
  • We would also love to hear your workshop requests too!

Tool Inventory

We are in the process of finalising the library of tools and will have these listed in an online inventory. These will be tools you will commonly need to do repairs around the house including power tools, spanners, and some garden tools.

We are also taking donations of tools so if you have some excess tools that you would like to share with the community, screws, bits and pieces please let the project manager know on
