I've been in Helena, MT, since late 1971. Back then, AERO was formed and began promoting alternative food supplies and home gardening, and alternative energy use rather than the standard products from corporate America. Since then, they've matured, fought through a long period of both success and failure, as much as I am aware, until today. Lately, they've promoted Neighborhood Conservation Clubs to which I signed up to be a member and co-leader of one. Check this group out!
