How lucky are we to have our very own Repair Cafe!!!

Didn’t even know we had one? You’re not alone. This little gem is a fantastic community asset and we’d love you to come check it out tomorrow as Mullum Cares is running a little morning tea fundraising stall for them. Santos Organics have generously donated tea making ingredients and The Source Bulk Foods threw in some Chai making equipment! The cups we’ll be serving with have been kindly lent to us by the Farmers Market – what an amazing community we have!  The sharing economy offers benefits that include all the ‘bottom lines’ – environmental, social & economic.

Bring your broken household stuff and they will help you fix it!

Sasha from Mullum Cares will be there keen to talk to the community about what they would like from the planned Library of Stuff. Haven’t heard about this awesome idea?  Jump on the new Facebook page and Sign Up so you can contribute to the design and planning phase of the project and help by listing items that you’d love to borrow!

The Repair Cafe loves the idea of a Tool Library and Mullum Cares loves the idea of of just about anything being shared but is interested on having items that help avoid waste – the first item in the Library is 100 sets of the pictured plates, bowls & cutlery that you will soon be able to borrow for less that the cost of single use items for your next kids party!

Come check out the regular Sat morning repair action and bring along any mismatched plastic container tops or bottoms, water bottle bodies or lids as there’s a chance they’ll find love again in the Plastic Perfect Match tub!


9-12pm Saturday’s at the rear of the Mullum Campus of the Byron Community College, Cnr Gordon & Burringbar St’s. Hope to see you tomorrow!
