The next Fairfield food swap will be on Saturday September 21, from 11 to 12 noon.  It can be found at the corner of Gillies and Duncan Streets, Fairfield. It will be in the side garden facing Duncan St.

Darebin Repair Cafe #9

Our 9th Darebin Repair Cafe. You must book in via Eventbrite to have an item repaired. There are limited spots available so only one booking per person. Expect to have one item looked at so everyone gets a fair go. It might be possible to have more but you will go back into the queue.

Repairs on: jewellery, clothes, and a few electrical & electronics items only. Plus test and tagging of your electrical items like extension cords. We will have a glueing area available if you’d like to repair your own things as there isn’t a glueing fixer this time.

Email us a photo of your repair with description of what needs fixing so we can check with fixers if it is doable and whether parts need to be purchased beforehand.

When: Sunday September 22, 10 am to 1 pm

Where: Reservoir Senior Citizen’s Centre – 2-4 Wright Street, Reservoir

Food Swaps – Preston/Thornbury

The next food swap will be on Saturday September 28, from 11 to 12 pm.  It can be found at the corner of High St and Pender St, Thornbury.

Fix-It Monthly Session – September

It’s Back! Our Newlands fix – it mend it Monthly session. Come Join Us.

This is an informal session, where people can bring their own items that need mending (and whatever supplies they need for it) and mend them themselves in good company.

How great will it be to be able to use those things in the back of the cupboard!

When: Thursday October 3, 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm.

Where: Preston – contact 0468 963 868.

We will start as a lounge room event & then see if it moves to a different venue.

Note we LOVE Repair Cafes where volunteers fix things for you. This is different – this is where we make the time to fix/mend our own things – to make it a priority 🙂

Food Swaps – Northcote

The next Northcote food swap will be on Saturday October 12, from 11 to 12 pm.  It can be found at 251 High St Northcote in the side garden of the church.

Food Swaps are an occasion to meet your community, talk about gardens and sustainability and swap excess produce from your garden, or something you made in your kitchen. You bring some and get to take some away as with all good swaps.

Ideas of what to bring:

  • seeds from your garden
  • seedlings
  • fruit
  • vegetables
  • herbs
  • preserves
  • cordials
  • sour dough starter

The list goes on…
