Next on the repair roster, we’ll be offering Axe & Knife Sharpening. Visit us outside the ReDirectory at 220 Sturdies Bay Road on Saturday, October 14th from 10 am to 1 pm with your goods. For those of you who attended our Tool Sharpening event in spring, you may remember we were somewhat overwhelmed with the number and array of items coming in for repair. By focusing on axes, hatchets, and kitchen knives this time around, and adjusting our processes, we aim for this to be a smooth operation.
GIRR’s repair workshop series is funded through the CRD’s Rethink Waste Community Grant program, which we are ever grateful for in helping us to keep useful items out of the waste management system before their time. Thank you to our community for taking part!
