  • Productive. Maybe.
  • A place to change the World. Definitely.
  • A refuge. When someone else thinks it is time to go shopping.
  • A helping hand. You bet.

    Hello! What a wonderful idea for a supportive gathering of skills.
    Do you fix stuff from the public or are you caring for the community projects.
    If you do fix stuff for public, I’m assuming only items one can carry, what renumeration is required.

    Hi Cindy, We have been known to fix bikes for the neighbourhood kids but mostly we do things like make birdbouses for schools and, when this cover 19 thing is over we have been asked to make some tiny libraries for the United Way.
    Sorry it took so long to reply.
