Handmade Open House Chopping Board

Available Now

Price: $40

These hand made chopping boards have been made by a group of young participants at Open House who are disengaged from school, struggle with a range of mental health issues and are from socially disadvantaged backgrounds. This process of designing and making the boards has taught them new skills and built their confidence in the workshop. Money raised through the sale of these boards will be re-invested into the program to ensure more students are able to access the program, in turn, reconnecting students with education and up-skilling in a range of different areas.

Handmade Horizontal Beehive

Available Now – More can be built to order. 

Note: Image just for reference.

We have a handmade horizontal beehive with wonderful benefits to beekeepers and can accommodate up to 24 standard frames.
This beautifully created beehive has been built by one of our programs at Open House and all proceeds will be put back into future projects aimed at re-engaging young people with education, training and employment.
– Very easy and accessible beehive and can inspect each frame without the need to remove boxes or frames.
– Fits 24 standard frames (horizontally) (8 standard frames included with wire and foundation).
– 2 x removable ‘peeky holes’ to quickly view / inspect the hive.

Fresh Organic Honey

Available To Order (in season)

Price: $15 (per jar)

The Open House youth and participants love getting their hands “sticky” as we regularly inspect and harvest fresh organic honey from our own hive. Depending on the season, honey will be available to purchase and as with all of Open House’s Social Enterprise products, funds from each sale will go directly back into Open House’s programs and directly help those in the community.
