Dundas Repair Cafe Launches December 2023
Action 13 is joining the international repair movement – started in Amsterdam in 2009 – by launching our own local Repair Cafe that will help Dundas residents have simple household items repaired rather than thrown away.
The Dundas Repair Cafe team has plans for this to be regular part of our community, with capacity to repair a broad range of items, including textile repairs, lamps and other furniture items, small appliances, leather goods, garden tools, and more.
If you would like to volunteer at these events (as a greeter or repair volunteer), please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
See our Events page for times and dates of upcoming Repair Cafe events.
Green Block Growing
Sharing and learning together in community is at the centre of our “Green Block” project. All are welcome to join our Monday meet-ups (April – November) where we explore a different topic and hands on activity each week.
The Green Block is also the site for various events ranging from native plant giveaways to learning side by side with permaculture and gardening experts.
