The Repair Café Palo Alto is a volunteer-run, community service dedicated to encouraging the repair and reuse of goods rather than relegating them to landfill.
Repair Café Palo Alto is patterned after the Repair Café movement that started and now flourishes in the Netherlands. The aim of the Repair Café movement is to reduce the amount of “stuff” that ends up in the waste stream by helping you fix items that you might otherwise throw away.
For thIs event, bring your broken things and work with our Repair Volunteers to assess what it would take to repair them. You can work with their Volunteers to do the repairs yourself (with their guidance) or have them tackle the job directly. With luck, you’ll walk away with a once-again useful item and some knowledge of how to repair other things in your universe.
