Since 2019, Energise Ōtaki has run highly successful Repair Café events, aimed at re-creating a culture of repairing items with the help of knowledgeable volunteers. We encourage the attendees to become involved in the repairs, so they’ll learn skills to use again.
Since 2017, the Ōtaki Bike Space has been accepting pre-loved bikes from the community, repairing them and re-gifting them.
