The Nest - Everton Park

The Nest is a volunteer-run, not-for-profit organisation that empowers all who visit with skills that will benefit both the individual and the community. Mentors and facilitators share a common love for community development and sustainable living. The Nest provides a sense of participation and belonging, thereby addressing a basic human need. A place where everyone's actions contributes towards a better community.

Time heals. But until time kicks in, what do you do while you're waiting? How do you relieve stress and decompress from everyday pressures? How do you ease the pain, distract your mind, soothe your soul? Solution: The creative crafts.

According to Robert Reiner, PhD, a New York University psychologist "The act of performing a craft is incompatible with worry, anger, obsession, and anxiety," he says. "Crafts make you concentrate and focus on the here and now and distract you from everyday pressures and problems. They're stress-busters in the same way that meditation, deep breathing, visual imagery, and watching fish are."

It's official, knitting is the new yoga for men. The Nest invites you to Knitters & Knatters, an event for the men in our lives who support our community. Bring along your husband, partner, son, brother, grandfather or a friend for a fun get-together and an opportunity to learn some knitting and crochet skills a simple event with great benefits.
