Southside Woodworks' Profile
Founded in 2015, Southside Woodworks is rooted in the Southside Neighborhood of Asheville, North Carolina. Born out of a need to create meaningful, sustainable employment for low-income residents, Southside Woodworks’ mission is to empower those facing barriers to employment in the crafting of beautiful, high quality goods.
Southside Woodworks is a social enterprise of Asheville-based Green Opportunities. Their flagship training program provides technical job training, life skills development, career pathways, and case management to those with barriers to employment.
We build sustainable, handcrafted wooden essentials, custom furniture, and are often commissioned for larger, custom projects, such as counters, bars, and kiosks. Each piece carries within it the compassion, community, and craftsmanship of its maker.
