About the group

Transition Berkeley Repair Café

TBRC is designed to cultivate awareness of the pronounced impact reuse has on the environment, personal well-being, and our community's resiliency. To cultivate motivation to extend the life of the things we have through repair, and the capacity to repair, both physically and metaphorically, through learning to fix things ourselves, or finding out how and where to have them repaired.
