53Maple is a further step towards educating people with life skills that benefit the greater good, we support sharing of skills and knowledge to preserve people’s learning. The WeTeachMe platform is an example of educating and sharing which supports the wider community in general.

The space we use became available when a building in main street Maleny became vacant after the resident Florist moved to new premises. After some discussion it was decided there is a need to share the space to advance knowledge in unique skill sets which can be quickly learnt an passed on by example and experience. Examples of workshops and classes to be run are photography, organic cooking, painting, sign writing, cake baking, etc.
