A Fantastic Day of Fixing!

BFUU generously provided our venue


 

Some 200 people gathered in Berkeley to do everything REPAIR:  Fix, Learn, Celebrate, Share.  It was a full, fun and inspiring day.

We WANT to fix our things!

We're working on figuring out how to transform our world to one that supports Repair, be it DYI, by friends, or at local repair shops.

Volunteers:
7 Outstanding Hosts
