This powerful program takes a whole year to complete, yet requires only 2 full days at an outdoor site plus opportunities for youngsters to explore natural places in their own community.

Repair Café February 29

Next Repair Café will be February 29 at the Comsewogue Public Library in Port Jefferson Station and then March 28 at South Country Library in Bellport. Mark your calendar. Save your broken stuff.

We always need more repair coaches--if you're good at fixing things, please let us know. We need someone who can work on jewelry. We are looking for people who can 'heal' stuffed animals or fix clothing. We'd love to have someone do on-site lessons on sewing on a button or darning socks or other simple DIY stuff. Are you a mental health professional who'd like to help "fix" people and can be a good listener for people who need to just talk? Are you good with computers? Good with fixing electronic stuff? Good at repairing furniture or miscellaneous items?
