We aspire to be a self-sufficient community run enterprise supported by strong leadership and community partnership to encourage a circular economy.

The Marsh Mender is a part of Darley Neighbourhood House & Learning Centre.

There are 4 components to the Marsh Mender puzzle!

The Marsh Mender aims to join members of the community together.

With a Sustainability focus, we give local people an opportunity to share knowledge, skills, ideas and resources through volunteering  and attending workshops.

We Currently collect:

A Repair Café brings together local volunteer ‘menders’ to repair items that might otherwise be prematurely discarded into landfill.

Our 2024 dates are: March SAT 23 | April SUN 21 | May SAT 25 | June SUN 23 | July SAT 27 | Aug SUN 25 | Sep SAT 21 |Oct SUN 27 | Nov SAT 23

Our Mini-Thingery, The Marsh Lender, is a library with a small number of big items available to borrow for a minimal membership cost. Contact us at marshmender@gmail.com if you have an item you would like to donate.

 

In 2024 we will launch our Share 2 Rewear program – stay tuned
