The Community Energy Project will be presenting a DIY Home Weatherization workshop in our space. This event is free and open to the public, although you should try to RSVP so they can bring enough materials! Register here: http://www.communityenergyproject.org/get-involved/calendar/ You can also register by calling Cass at (503) 284-6827 x108 . From their website: Anyone can make weatherization improvements at home – whether you own or rent, whether you’re in an apartment, mobile home, or house – you can make basic improvements to make your home more comfortable by saving energy and money. CEP provides 50 workshops throughout the weatherization season (end of September to March) in many communities. Learn how to implement simple measures to lower home energy use and by installing effective weatherization materials using basic tools such as scissors and screwdriver. Each participating income-qualified Portland household receives a free kit of materials worth over $100. Each kit includes reusable vinyl storm window kits, door weatherstripping, pipe insulation, a compact fluorescent light and more. http://www.communityenergyproject.org/services/diy-weatherization-workshops/ http://www.facebook.com/events/817099091731961/

Want to work on your bike, but don't have all the tools? You can come to the shop and use ours! Not sure where to start once the wrench is in your hand? Our mechanics are here to help you learn. Women and Trans wrench night is every 1st and 3rd Tuesday at our shop. This shift is specifically for all women and trans identified people, and is closed to cisgender males, to provide a safer space for women and gender minorities. Bike Farm is an all volunteer run, do-it-yourself bicycle education collective. We provide the stands, tools, and mechanic advice to help you learn to work on your own bicycle. More information about this shift: We introduce ourselves by our preferred names and pronouns. Our mission is to provide: 1. A space for women and trans identified people to practice and learn skills in a cisgender male majority industry 2. A supportive community for women and trans identified people 3. Affordable access to bicycle transportation and repair for women and trans identified people of all incomes 4. A culture of respect for people's identities and level of understanding on the subject of gender, which can be confusing. It's okay to make mistakes when we are willing to learn from them, and we encourage people to take the initiative to co-educate each other. If you aren't a female or transgender person, but want to support this community, please be an ally and come back to Bike Farm during a regular shift! And tell your friends! http://www.facebook.com/events/1408923752743740/
