Our major community service effort was hosting a bike repair day at the York Bike Shed, a public art project developed by Richard Saxton. Richard converted this shed, which used to be the town’s radio and tv repair shop, into a self-sustaining building. It is equipped with solar panels and a grey-water system that irrigates the surrounding garden.

The shed, which had been closed since the fall, needed a little “tlc”. With the community’s help, we organized the bike shed’s tools and supplies, and revived the garden.

Over the course of the morning, we gave away and helped repair more than a dozen bikes.
