I had the opportunity to visit Chris & the group while in town recently for a family reunion. I first learned about them a year ago & was so impressed with all they do to help the community. They are the kind of neighbors we would all like to have. Please go & see for yourself all that they do. If so inclined please feel free to leave a donation. Thank you so much for your hospitality & the tour.

Some many maker spaces have poor selection of tools or super high prices to participate. The Geek Group is none of these things, the selection is amazing, the space is superb and the staff are friendly and helpful.

Lots of classes and tours on the website with really incredible membership rates! Great work Geek Group.
