Zoom Fixit Clinic - Repair Help Online - Saturday, April 17
Want to try fixing items from home? Register below to present your item to a global team of expert community repairers and get suggestions for things to try. After all items have been presented, participants will move to Zoom breakout rooms to implement the suggestions and, hopefully, fix the items.
- Do you have a computer, phone, or tablet (and internet connection) that will work with Zoom?
- Can you show the item and problem in about three minutes?
- (Optional:) Can you have some rudimentary disassembly tools at the ready?
- Can you fill out the Report Broken Item form at http://bit.ly/brokenitemreport afterwards?
Alternatively: there's the 𝙂𝙡𝙤𝙗𝙖𝙡 𝙁𝙞𝙭𝙚𝙧𝙨 𝙎𝙚𝙧𝙫𝙚𝙧 for always-on 24x7 around-the-clock around-the-world repair.
Community repairers (or wannabe repairers, "fixing families") are always welcome to help fix or simply observe: sign up at http://bit.ly/fixitcoachsignup

Make Soup Not Waste - A Virtual Food Waste Prevention Cooking Workshop
Learn strategies that prevent food waste in this interactive workshop with Anne-Marie Bonneau, aka the Zero-Waste Chef. When you eat all the food you buy, you not only save money, you also conserve resources. During the pandemic, finding ways to use all of the food you have on hand means you can shop less frequently, and stay home longer, helping to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
Tie on your apron, grab your knife and vegetables and join Anne-Marie and our virtual audience as we make soup together with what we found in our refrigerators. No two pots will be the same!
Watch the recorded webinar.
