Repair Café

Hello!
The second Mudisland Community Garden repair café will start at 2:30 Sunday 30th of April but if you want to get involved, you can come at 2 pm (or even 1:30 – some of us will be there at that time).
You can also bring a few home baked buns for sharing if you want but no pressure!
Bring something to repair (we do jewelry, crokery, clothes, bike and knives / garden tools). There will be 3-4 stations with volunteers for each.
Bring a friend & family – tell everyone!
See you on Sunday 30th of April.😊

What’s new?!

We garden every Tuesday and Saturday afternoon 2 to 5 pm and new gardeners are always welcome.

We do an introduction to the garden and planting plan on the first Saturday of each month as and when needed. When it gets warmer and the garden needs more watering we’ll hopefully open up again on Thursday afternoons for gardening, and on Sundays for recreation – we’re all volunteers so it’s dependent on people’s availability.

The Muddy Craft & Crochet Circle meets in the Cottage on Friday afternoons (3-5pm) and our new Repair Cafe was launched on the last Sunday of March, 2.30 to 5.30 pm.  Bicycles were fixed, clothes repaired, crockery mended the Kintsuki way and knives & garden tools sharpened!  The Repair Cafe will continue on the last Sunday of every month. Next one is Sunday 30th of April (same time!).

Launch of the Mudisland ‘Repair Café’

On Sunday 26th of March, from 2:30 to 5:30, join us for our first ever Repair Café. Bring your bike, buggy, clothes, crockery and garden tools to be fixed (hopefully!). You can learn, you can share skills and you will meet a lot of people!

Repair Café – every last Sunday of the month!

On Sundays, from 2:30 to 5:30, join us for our Repair Café. Bring your bike, buggy, clothes, crockery and garden tools to be fixed (hopefully!). You can learn, you can share skills and you will meet a lot of people!

The idea: We throw away vast amounts of stuff – stuff which could get a new lease of life after a simple repair. Lots of people have forgotten that they can repair things themselves or they no longer know how. Repair Cafés are free meeting places where people come together to repair things together. In a local Repair Café, you’ll find tools and materials to help you make any repairs you need on clothes, furniture, electrical appliances, bicycles, crockery, appliances, toys, etc. You’ll also find expert volunteers, with repair skills in all kinds of fields. Visitors bring their broken items from home and in the Repair Café, they start making their repairs with the specialists. It’s an ongoing learning process.

Repair Cafés help people in the community whose skills may not always be valued to get involved again. It helps neighbours from different backgrounds connect with each other and allows valuable practical knowledge to be shared. Repairing things at a Repair Cafe means things are being used for longer and don’t have to be thrown away. This reduces the volume of raw materials and energy needed to make new products.
