Each month we organise and promote a Trashlab Repair Cafe event at a different location. In June, Kääntöpöytä hosts the repair cafe event on Saturday 15.6. from 14-17.
Kääntöpöytä (Turntable) is an urban garden in the middle of old railway yard in Pasila. Equipped with beehive, dry toilet and different alternative, sustainable food growing methods, it is a place for inspiration and information for farming in cities. Kääntöpöytä cafe will be open for coffee and tea, and possibly small snacks & bites from the garden (cash only). Consult this map to help find it if you haven't been before.
Trashlab repair cafe events are social occasions to gather and try to fix the things you have that are broken, and meet others who care about tinkering, fixing, hacking, and the problem of waste and obsolescence in society. Each time we try to identify someone(s) in advance who have some experience/skills, although everyone is encourage to help each other. On this occasion Albert Laine and Maria Nordlund (Dodo) have offered their expert support in electronics and plant repairs respectively.
See selected documentation of previous repair cafe events in Helsinki. Trashlab is an on going project supported Pixelversity programme in 2013. Register your attendance in related FB event.
