MAKE DO AND MEND: Volunteers Ken Huck, left, and Tom Harter helped an attendee repair a broken pot handle at the first WNC Repair Café, held earlier this year. In addition to saving money and building new skills, the workshops keep repairable objects out of the landfill, says Dan Hettinger, who leads the effort locally. Photo courtesy of Dan Hettinger

WNC Repair Café returns to Living Web Farms

Got a broken toaster or sewing machine? Maybe a lawnmower that won’t crank after its winter hibernation? Check out the WNC Repair Café on Tuesday, April 24 in Hendersonville. At the free event, which is run by the local incarnation of a global network, residents can get help fixing common items, resulting in saving money and keeping repairable objects out of the landfill.
