Our next Repair Cafe is Saturday from 10-12pm! We need volunteers! Please DM if you can volunteer! Thank you!!
Good evening everyone!
This Saturday 7/20 is our Repair Café over in Tampa. It is from 10am-12pm at the John F Germany Library. 900 N Ashley, Tampa. Volunteers please arrive by 9:30am. The public is invited to bring their broken items for repair. Bring pictures of your broken bikes this time around. We’ll be able to make the repairs at the August Repair Café. Light refreshments will be available for participants while they wait for repairs to be completed. There will also be a DIY reading table. The library is putting together a nice selection of DIY books for our table! We are very grateful for the support of the library for this event!
We’ve added a Painting with a Purpose fundraiser on July 27th from 4pm-6pm. The address is 2527 Central Ave, St. Petersburg. Everyone has to pre-register to reserve their seat. There are limited seats available and these events tend to sell out pretty quickly so please RSVP as soon as possible. The link to register is: http://www.paintingwithatwist.com/studio/stpetersburg/event/2124623
August 17th – 10-12pm, Repair Café at United Seminole Methodist Church, 5400 Seminole Blvd. We’ll be doing Bike Repair at this Repair Café.
And every Wednesday night @ 6pm (weather permitting of course) is garden night at E2A. We’ve been rained out the last few Wednesdays but we’ll get back in our groove this coming week I’m sure! Our wonderful garden volunteers raised $300 dollars on Facebook to expand our garden and add new plants to it. Thank you volunteers! Everyone is welcome to lend a hand in the garden! No experience necessary! And anyone interested in contributing a recipe to our garden cookbook please send them via email. We greatly appreciate it and look forward to trying out all of your healthy & delicious recipes!
Recruiting is happening now for September Ambassador Training. Please email me or call 727-710-0649 so we can get everyone set up for the first cohort. We’ll be doing an ATP open house in early October so stay tuned for the date!
Please feel free to share this update with anyone you think may be interested in our events!
I’m getting a lot calls and emails about the upcoming Repair Cafe so I thought I’d answer some common questions I’m receiving ..
Our Repair Cafe is the only one in Florida right now. The next one we are doing is in Tampa because the John F Germany library requested us to come there on 7/20/19.
There seems to be a lot of interest in the Sarasota area so if anyone in that area wants to start a Repair Cafe then we’ll help you get started. Just message me and we’ll make it happen. I already have 3 people with things down there that need repair!
We repair what our volunteer experts can fix so if we get the word out and build our network of repair experts then we’ll be able to fix more things so please tell everyone you know about Repair Cafes! You never know who’s secretly hiding a repair skill!
For Tampa Repair Cafe, please bring a picture of your broken bike. We can’t mess up the library so no bikes inside please! We’ll have another Repair Cafe in August at our classroom in Seminole and we’ll fix the bikes there.
We’ll be doing sewing and basic repairs on electronics and small appliances at the Tampa Repair Cafe. In August we should have some jewelry repair along with the bike repair stations open.
Keep your questions coming! Email email@example.com.
I’m so excited that so many people are calling to find out if we can fix something before it goes in the trash! #bethechange #earthtoautism #tossitnoway
Wednesdays are always garden night at Earth to Autism. Join us 6pm at 5400 Seminole Blvd, Seminole FL behind the church each Wednesday night. Everyone is always welcome! We’ve got $350 in pledges this week for our community garden project. Thank you to our online & offline donors. You guys are awesome! We’ll be brainstorming some ideas as to what items we’d like to purchase and where we’d like our next community garden plot to be located as we take care of the garden. See you tomorrow night!
Starting this week we are going to change our gardening time on Wednesday’s from 6pm to 7pm.
