Repair Café

The Repair Café is part of a climate action movement across the world to keep items out of the landfill by repairing them rather than purchasing new ones. The Community Center has held two in-person Repair Café events and when our building reopens, we look forward to hosting more. In the meantime, our NextGen participants are working on “how-to” videos to quickly fix and upcycle items that have been used or broken. The Repair Café is run by skilled volunteers. At past events, our volunteers have fixed jewelry, ceramics, wood items, bicycles, small appliances, musical instruments, book bindings, and our most impressive fix—a dirt bike.
