Repair Café – Roxbury

Saturday, March 9th, 10am - 2pm At the Carriage House behind Gould Church in Roxbury At a Repair Café, we bring our beloved-but-broken items and together, with a volunteer Repair Specialist, we fix them! We'll be repairing lamps and appliances, and mending clothing and other textiles. We will have standard lamp parts available for purchase. We can help diagnose problems and figure out where to order specialty parts. Don't let this opportunity pass you by! We have two very skilled volunteers to repair clothing and textiles. If you need a specialty zipper replaced, please bring the new zipper with you. There will be fresh brewed coffee and homemade cookies, too. We can't guarantee everything is fixable, but we're certain you'll have an interesting time. The Gould Church is located at 53837 State Hwy 30, Roxbury, NY 12474

Transition Streets

Starting Thursday, December 13th from 1 to 2pm, we're featuring the award-winning program Transition Streets on our show "Here Comes the Sun" at 91.3 FM and streaming at www.wioxradio.org https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6cgH1JasBi0 Transition Streets brings neighbors together to implement simple household changes, turning concern into action and building community street-by-street. Participating households typically save about $900 per year on expenses and reduce carbon emissions by about 2600 lbs per year. Transition Streets provides a curated guidebook to make changes, empowering neighbors with proven actions to conserve energy and save money. The actions are mostly no-cost or low-cost, so anyone can play. Each show will feature two neighbors in the studio. We'll also have a call-in expert, who can answer any questions that arise.

At the end of each section, we'll each commit to one or two actions we can take to save money and reduce carbon, and we urge you to do the same.  Here's the schedule for December thru May on our every-other-Thursday 1-2 pm time slot: December 13th:  GETTING STARTED Carolyne Stayton from Transition US in Sebastopol, CA, joins us to introduce the Transition Streets program.
