May 7 Cafe  joint event with Permapatch and CropSwap

Visitors to our April Repair Café days made 115 successful fixes! With the help of our skilled volunteers, the visitors repaired items ranging from clothing to jewellery to small battery operated gadgets to shoes and tools sharpening.

We will be open as usual in May, on the first and second Sundays.

Make a note of the first Sunday, 7th May. This is a special occasion. We will celebrate a joint open event day with Permapatch Community Garden. We also welcome the participation of Crop Swap Sydney.

This is a day not to be missed!

Do come early and visit the Permapatch Community Garden located right behind the Café. Wander through the garden, enjoy morning tea, wood fire pizza, wine (by donation) and participate in the Crop Swap.
