Clark County Men’s Shed
Advancing the health and well-being of older men
Clark County Men’s Shed provides a space where men can pursue meaningful, creative interests and socialize with other men in the process. Men’s Sheds promote informal discussions on health issues and other concerns as men work together on projects or just stop in for coffee and conversation.

Men’s Sheds originated in Australia to improve the health of older men who may be at risk of developing preventable health problems which arise from social isolation and loneliness. Professor Barry Golding coined the phrase “Men don’t talk face to face. They talk shoulder to shoulder.” to describe how sheds help promote informal discussions of health issues and other concerns as men work together on projects or just stop in for coffee and conversation.
The Clark County Men’s Shed meets on the second and fourth Mondays of the month in the Friends of the Carpenter building 1600 W. 20th Street, Vancouver.
