Spring Repair Cafe at The Gear Fix
We’re returning to The Gear Fix for our Spring Repair Cafe, and we’re excited to hold it in their new location! We’ll have volunteer fixers on hand to repair your broken items, for free! A Repair Cafe connects people with broken stuff, with people that like to fix stuff. Repairing instead of replacing prevents waste and saves resources. Doing it with other people makes it fun and cultivates community! Items to bring include:
- Small appliances
- Clothing (just repairs, no alterations please)
- Outdoor Gear
- Small furniture
- Boots and shoes
- If you’re not sure, bring it!
If you have questions about this event, or are interested in becoming a volunteer fixer, please contact denise by email or phone, (541)385-6908 x14

Free Rethink Waste Community Presentation
We offer free community presentations to get the latest info on what you can recycle locally and what you can’t (and why), as well as composting options, ideas for reuse, and ways to think about how to live a fuller life with less stuff.
The Rethink Waste Project is available to present to your organization, business, club or neighborhood group. Contact denise to schedule your free, 30 – 60 minute presentation today!
See the culmination of different youth groups and classrooms’ work as they repurposed discarded, leftover and trash items into a community reclaimed art project to encourage people to Rethink Waste. The Art of Recycling has been on display throughout Central Oregon and is now available for schools, businesses and organizations to set up temporarily to highlight their waste reduction efforts. Contact us to borrow this display!
