The woodshop serves
some clients on a rotating basis while others are full-time. Clients
make different wood products for sale to the general public and
local vendors. These products include bags of kindling, survey stakes,
for a local greenhouse for packaging, wooden bird and bat houses,
washer toss games and other items. Clients in this program are also
responsible for the Ewaste activities, which consists of receiving
and storing end-of-life electronics such as computer parts, radios
and TV's. These are collected by RRFB,
the provincial government agency for recycling, monthly and transported
to a disassembly compound. The skill sets clients learn to utilize
are carpentry skills, measuring, working as a team, stocking supplies,
forklift certification (if they have the ability), wrapping and
packaging product for transportation and customer service.
