I love their tool library. It's a great to be able to borrow tools I rarely use instead of buying them. Their workshops are informative and I've learned a lot from the board members and volunteers.

MUD is great. I have attended a number of workshops - beer making, cheese making, and so on - and they are informative and enjoyable. I really like that the workshops are not theoretical but provide practical ways we can each change how we live so as to sustain our dwindling resources.

MUD has proved to be an invaluable resource for the Missoula community and more specifically for myself. After buying our new home last year (with help from the first home buyer tax credit), MUD has consistently been there to provide the tools we needed to tackle the various home maintenance projects that have persisted in popping up. From rebuilding one of the biggest walls in our home, to painting the interior, to building window frames and new trim, to hanging up art work (some of which we made from left over wood cuttings from using MUD table and chop saws), to resizing some of the doors in our house, MUD has always had the tools we needed to enable us to do projects that otherwise would have been much more costly and much less accessible. Thanks so much MUD!

MUD is an incredible asset to the Missoula community. Even after having moved away from Montana several years ago, I often find myself wishing that I still had access to MUD's tool library -- especially the apple press!

MUD is an amazing organization that has served the Missoula community for 30 years. Its grassroots at its finest and many other important Missoula organizations have been "born" in the houses and gardens of the MUD demonstration cite. Garden City Harvest is a great example. MUD itself continues to inspire people and provide resources (including information and the physical tools/materials) to live a little more lightly on this planet, while building community with others. I love MUD and all they do.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Short service as a Board Member (I moved for a job or would have continued). Before becoming a board member I went to lots of the MUD workshops and found them really useful.

A little more infrastructure. But, that comes with funding for staff and most of their resources go into programs.

I live on the North Side of Missoula and am a home owner here. One of the vital elements that makes us feel deeply at home in our hood is the TOOL LIBRARY. We use the tool library for many a home renovation, big or small and have, for a number of years in a row now, utilized the cider press to makes loads of apple cider. Many of our neighbors are our friends and it is a common experience in the hood that home renovation is more possible because we have access to tools of every kind at the TOOL LIBRARY. Not only do they have a wide variety of tools, they are great tools, they work and the volunteer help is warm, enthusiastic and engaged. In my experience, the TOOL LIBRARY does much more than simply make renovation projects possible that might otherwise not be... it is an epicenter of community. The TOOL LIBRARY is a model that sparks community and sustainability. In a national economy based, too often, on planned obsolescence, consumption and individualism... the TOOL LIBRARY is a microcosmic counterpoint and a life-giving alternative.

Create campaigns/funds to replicate the tool library in neighborhood centers throughout Missoula, not just the North/West-side.

MUD is a unique and vibrant part of this community. Its use is beneficial on many different levels and a fantastic resource to draw from. In addition to the volunteers like Mike Manhardt who display dedication and a wealth of knowledge on many subjects, the staff of MUD are very enthusiastic and a pleasure to do business with. I'm glad its an inveterate part of Missoula.
