On Sat., Aug. 17, the Co-op will partner with Transition Pasadena to hold an open house from 6-9 PM -- and bring your broken items, because "volunteer tinkers and tailors will be on hand to mend your broken items and make them like new."
The Repair Café movement brings people together to share coffee and repair household items together. There are usually tools and experts to help fix things, with the idea that too much gets thrown away, already.
In addition, it will be an opportunity to see the co-op building and meet with members of the board who will talk about plans for the co-op.
The open house and Repair Café will be at the Arroyo Food Co-op, 494 N. Wilson Avenue, Pasadena.
