How we started
Darby retired from the Navy in 2013, his post career employer brought our family to Greenville, NC. The company downsized and eliminated his position. After a few odd jobs and reading Adam Savage’s book Every Tool’s a Hammer, he found himself wanting and complaining that there was no makerspace in our community. Apparently Tara heard him complaining one too many times and told him to open one. That was July 2019 and Makerspace of Greenville was open December 2019.
