Southside Woodworks is a social enterprise of Green Opportunities (GO) that builds sustainable, handcrafted wooden essentials, custom furniture, and can be commissioned for larger, custom projects. Southside Woodworks was launched in 2015 by GO staff members Eric Howell and Doug Sharkey, and is headquartered in Asheville’s Southside neighborhood.

 

Green Opportunities’ flagship Southside Construction training program includes technical job training, life skills, career pathways, and case management to those with barriers to employment. The Southside Woodworks offshoot employs students during and after their training. Our goal is two-fold: to help students support themselves while they complete the training program, and help them create their own careers upon graduation.
