Five years ago today we invited a small number of wonderful people to join discussion about D.I.Y. and gardening at a new site.
The original Workshop site designOur hand-picked community founders began eagerly sharing their projects, experiences and advice with each other, and it was clear that we had something special. By the following September, we removed the curtain surrounding the site and invited everyone to join the fun.
In the past five years, members have shared thousands of inspiring projects with the Workshop community and provided invaluable advice to people needing a helping hand.
We're really proud that this is a friendly and encouraging place where everyone is welcome to participate. It doesn't matter what your background is, or whether you have little or no experience on the tools. Everyone is encouraged to have a go and see what they can achieve in their home and garden. This is a place of respect and belonging.
What members say when they are recommending WorkshopJudging by the wonderful feedback from so many of you who kindly completed our recent member survey, you agree this is a special place. We're so pleased that many of you have been telling your friends and family about the benefits of joining the community, describing it in glowing terms such as "helpful", "friendly" and "inspiring".
The exciting part is that we have only just begun. We have bold plans for making the site easier to use and navigate, and for significantly growing the community so that many more people can join in the discussions and share their projects.
We're really excited about the future of the Bunnings Workshop community and thank you so much for your contribution to making this a special place for all. Please reach out if you ever need a hand.
