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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
Here are some pictures from working in the garden tonight.
Today we had our first planning session in the ambassador training room. Our wishlist is now up on Amazon to share the items we need for the program.

Sheryl Sandberg, a Facebook executive talks about women coming to the table and leaning in. I thought about adults with autism and whether they get their chance to come sit at the table and who’s making room at the table for them. I thought well maybe E2A can add a seat at the table for adults with autism but then I thought nah let’s get rid of the table so there’s no limit to how many adults with autism can achieve success in the workplace. E2A would love to help each and every adult with autism to reach their goals and achieve success! We’ll work to flip & or push any table out of the way that stands in the way of an adult with autism achieving success in the workplace! Call or text us to start your journey to success in the workplace! 727-710-0649
