Collaborative repair café held by Repair Café Aotearoa NZ and Auckland Central City Library!

What is on offer?

  • REPAIRS available are MENDING of clothing and textiles (yet no alterations) as well as small ELECTRICAL household items such as your toaster, lamp, vacuum cleaner, etc. We don't accept microwaves, though.
  • A BOKASHI workshop from Judy at Compost Collective, from 2:30-3:30pm

To accommodate everyone, you will be able to see our volunteer repairers for 1 item at a time. If you have more than one item you'd like us to look at and there is enough time, you can register your second item afterwards.

Join Judy, from Compost Collective, to learn about Bokashi fermentation for your food waste.

This system is ideal for apartment dwellers and avid gardeners alike as the fertilisers can be used to boost the health of your plants and keep your drains odour free. You'll have the opportunity to make your own system to take home.

Sign up here for your bucket allocation and claim your $40 discount coupon following the workshop -
