Oct 28 @ 1:00 pm – 5:00 pm

On Saturday, October 28th from 1:00 to 5:00 PM, please visit Houston’s first Repair Cafe at TX/RX Labs at 205 Roberts Street. A Repair Cafe celebrates fixing through a fun, collaborative, hands-on, fix-n-learn, community event. People bring in their broken items for assessment, disassembly and repair. Bring your tool kit and join to have fun and learn while helping others troubleshoot and fix their broken stuff! Volunteers assess, take apart, and hopefully — REPAIR. Transition Houston is partnering with TX/RX Labs, the City of Houston Green Building Resource CenterHouston Complete CommunitiesCitizens’ Environmental CoalitionTexas Campaign for the Environment, and the Houston Peace and Justice Center in this effort! They invite you to bring in a broken item and meet local people who have offered to share their skills to help you make repairs. If you have nothing to repair, you can enjoy a cup of tea or coffee. Or you can lend a hand with someone else’s repair job. You can also get inspired at the reading table, by leafing through books on repairs and DIY. Acceptable Items to bring include clothing, small appliances as well as tools and blades for sharpening
. Can you volunteer to help with repair or the event? Calling all handywomen, handymen, handy kids, handy teens and families, tinkerers, and sewers! Volunteer to have fun and learn through helping others troubleshoot and fix their broken stuff. Volunteers are also needed on the day of the event as guides and to assist with general coordination. Sign up to participate online at https://repaircafehouston.eventbrite.com.

Come join Bayou Land Conservancy on November 11, 2017, as they celebrate another successful year of conserving land along our bayous, creeks and streams at their “Swamp Thing Gala.” You might even learn some fun facts about wetlands and all the critters and plants that live there. Share a night of inspiration with co-workers, clients, friends and nature lovers. Who knows, you could catch a glimpse of the mysterious “swamp thing”! The event will be held at the beautiful Southwestern Energy Headquarters, a 26-acre property located adjacent to the Spring Creek Greenway just off I-45. The grounds are planted with native plants and grasses that are irrigated with water from the nearby retention ponds. The sites serves as an excellent example of environmentally friendly actions that we can all employ.
