MapLocation: The site search has ended and we have officially found our new home!!  We are located at 123 Woolwich Street, Guelph, ON.


Open House: Come for a tour on Saturday, July 16, 2016 between 11:00am-2:00pm.  See our new space, check out our current collection of tools, and join the tool library!  This open house is part of the Urban Farm Tour, more info at


Memberships: Our website is up and running, which means you can become a member.  Visit or come to our open house this Saturday, July 16th to join.


Tool Donations: We have received many gracious donations of basic garden tools, but we haven’t received much kitchen related inventory. A list of things we could use is listed at the end of this update. Please spread the word!


Repair Cafe: We’re hosting our first Repair Cafe on the morning of August 20th at St James the Apostle Church. You can bring in a broken household item and ideally, get it fixed! There will be various repair stations: electrical items, jewelry, zippers, clothing, furniture and wooden items, etc. The CSA Bike Centre will be there for minor bike repairs and maintenance. There will also be a locally grown salad buffet brunch, tool library donation drop-off, swap tables and info displays. More info to come!


Volunteers: Yup, we’ll need them. Interested? Email us and I’ll add you to our list. We believe in giving volunteers interesting and creative tasks. Write-ups of volunteer positions are in the works.
