Higher education and local organizations are rallying to preserve hundreds of objects from landfills.
Inspired by the growing international success of the Repair Café concept born in the Netherlands, this project invites community members to come learn how to repair various objects for free (electrical and electronic devices, bicycles, clothing, shoes, etc.).
