Many guests had the opportunity to share the awe of the two grand ravens who have built a very large nest in the Throop Church belfry. Their presence is as thrilling as the rain. The patrons and the ravens alike were serenaded by David and Daniel and Shakurra. Many seeds and seedlings, worms and compost, and freshly picked avocados and lemons found new homes. We are continually surprised at what Repair Care reveals: the sense of abundance, people sharing their own paths to consciousness about the need for alternate economies, and the bliss of the unexpected like ravens and vocalists, the miracle packed in a seed and the glee felt by the repair folks when they have fixed something for a new friend.
Repair Café at Pasadena Earth and Arts Festival 2014
Next up, Repair Café has been challenged by the Earth and Arts Festival to go ’off-the-grid‘! Our own tinker team is up to the challenge! Mark your calendars for May 3 in Memorial Park, 11am to 5 pm. We will have a team of two tinkers and two tailors on solar powered machines and bike repair! Cycle on down!
To volunteer for a two or three hour shift as tinker, tailor, triage, or other, contact me.
