Let’s Make It!

Join us in bringing G.A.L.A.’s original vision to life by establishing Makers Mill: A Makerspace & Vocation Hub where people come together to cultivate and share a wide variety of crafts, skills, technologies, and arts for personal, professional, and community goals.

Help us open our doors!

We just need to raise $78,000 of our Phase 1 Construction budget of $1,300,000 to open our doors later this year!

Town Cleanup Day


5/8/2021 from 8:00 AM to 11:00 AM ET

Join in on a little spring cleaning by participating in Wolfeboro Town Clean-Up Day on Saturday, May 8th. Participants can pick up blue trash bags, gloves and a limited number of reflective vests from Makers Mill at 23 Bay St., Wolfeboro, between 8:00 am and 11:00 am.  Participants are also asked to identify which street/area they intend to clean up so that we can coordinate with the Wolfeboro Solid Waste about picking up the blue bags afterward. Refreshments will be served. Bags are also available from the Wolfeboro Solid Waste Facility on Beach Pond Rd. 

Gather friends, family, neighbors, or participate as a group with one of the local service organizations, and clean up your street! Filled bags can be left set back safely by the roadside for staff at the Solid Waste Facility to collect on Monday for sorting, recycling and disposal. 

Participants are advised to wear appropriate protective clothing and closed-toe shoes, bright colors or safety vests, masks, and gloves, and bring a water bottle. Keep your distance from others, carry hand sanitizer, and tick repellent is recommended.  Anyone driving the roads is asked to be extra careful and aware of volunteers working to clean up our roadsides on this date.

Makers Mill Executive Director, Josh Arnold, said, “This the original curbside pickup before curbside pickup became a thing.  I’ll see you on the streets!”

For more information or to register a group contact Ivette Babylon at 569-0169 or email ivette.babylon@gmail.com.

Registration for this event is closed.

We can't break ground without you!

  • Together, we bought a 10,000 sq ft building in downtown Wolfeboro, New Hampshire.

  • We asked the community how to best utilize the space to meet their goals and needs.

  • We used your feedback to prioritize programs and create floor plans.

  • We worked with the town and architects to turn those plans into construction documents ready for bidding.

  • From grants and generous donors, 94% percent of the $1.35 million needed is already committed!

The final 6% - or $78,000 - needs to be raised by summer 2021 in order to open the doors in fall.

This is our fundraising homestretch to be shovel ready!

The Makers Mill is a great example of what’s needed to help tackle New Hampshire’s outmigration and workforce challenges, especially in Carroll County where they are the most pronounced.

Will Stewart, Executive Director, Stay, Work, Play NH

We agree with G.A.L.A. on the benefits of bringing a makerspace into Carroll County, and are thrilled to name Wolfeboro as the home of this regional service.

Mary DeVries, Executive Director, Wolfeboro Chamber of Commerce

I am enthusiastic about working with the Makers Mill to address the gap in services for 18 - 30 yr olds who wish to upgrade their technical skills or the adults who wish to retrain for new job transitions.

Bruce Farr, President, Lakes Region Technology Center

We’ve come a long way!

The story of G.A.L.A. began with a potluck supper in the winter of 2006 when a small group of community members came together to ask themselves, “how can we be the change we want to see in the world?”
