When something breaks, keep it out of the landfill and save money on a replacement by bringing it to Repair Café. Come on out and see your neighbors: everyone is welcome. It helps if attendees indicate that they plan to attend.

Mulch for the People
Mulch for the People is a space for gardeners, arborists and city planners to share ideas.
Conserving water while diverting resources from the waste-stream.
An irony is that most Pasadenans pay to remove mulch from their properties, and at the same time Pasadenans pay to bring mulch into the city. It is kind of ridiculous! Private tree trimming companies pay approximately $50 a truckload to dump wood chip mulch at the landfill. And at the same time, gardeners are buying wood chip mulch by the bag at garden supply stores. We know there is a better way!
Keep up to date with our initiative to inform citizens and civil servants in Pasadena to stop throwing out good mulch and to make it available from the City for the people!
