What we're about
Do you like to fix and tinker with things? Are you interested in helping others learn how to repair their household items, building knowledge and community while avoiding items going to landfill - AND reducing the need to spend more money while using our finite resources more efficiently? Do you like to organize and connect community groups and local residents? Are you good at teaching and sharing knowledge? Do you have tools or a space to share? If so, then this is the place for you!
This is a gathering place for fixers, teachers, organisers, space owners and change makers across Melbourne to gather so that we can hold "Repair Cafe" events in the community, primarily focussing (or starting) with Melbourne's inner western suburbs with the option of branching further afield as we grow.
Please fill out your profile to help identify your interest and what you have or know or can share. Please pass this onto your friends, neighbours and colleagues who may be interested in participating. And come join our Facebook group where we can share ideas, articles, videos and other resources - https://www.facebook.com/groups/melbournerepaircafe/.

This is a Transition Town Maribyrnong initiative and comes under the umbrella of the international Repair Cafe Foundation (http://repaircafe.org/en/).
