Repair Cafe

Transition Howard County is planning a series of Repair Cafes!  A Repair Cafe is a place where people can bring things that need to be fixed or mended instead of throwing them away.  Many different types of repairs occur at the cafe from mending clothes to fixing small appliances or jewelry.  It's a great way to help keep things out of the landfill as well as save money.  NBC Nightly News recently had a wonderful segment on Repair Cafes.  More information on the international movement is here:

Our first Repair Cafe will be at GreenFest at Howard Community College on Saturday April 22 from Noon to 2pm.  Our second Repair Cafe is scheduled for July 15  from 2 - 4pm at Miller Library.  We are looking for people who have all sorts of  repair skills, also referred to as "fixers".  So if you have the ability to repair items and are interested in participating in the Repair Cafe, please fill out the form to the right.  Even if you aren't available on one of our scheduled dates, please fill out the form so we can let you know as other dates are scheduled. If you have any questions, please contact  

If you would like to bring one or more broken items to the Repair Cafe at GreenFest, please fill out the form below so we can have the appropriate people and tools on hand for the repair.
