S1E7 Repair Cafe

At the time of this interview Chris Hooper had been running a monthly Repair Cafe in Castlemaine for over a year. In that time they saved over 600kg of waste from being thrown out; objects, clothing and mechanical items that can now live to see another day.  In this episode I speak to Chris about how it all started, how it works and where it is going. I also spoke to some of her repair volunteers, who talk about what it is like to be a repairer, why they do it and some of the things they have been asked to repair.

This episode was created in 2018 as part of an eight part series called An Environment For Change. This series was supported by MAINfm and the Mount Alexander Shire Council.
