While I'm not part of the Missoula community, I am intrigued by the ideas and methods of sustainability put forth by this group. I feel as though many of the community services that this group offers, such as the tool library and the truck share programs are great ways to encourage not only sustainability but also a sense of community camaraderie. I think these organizations should be more widespread, especially in agricultural areas.

MUD is a great, uniquely Missoula organization. They have helped me with tools/equipment to make countless home repairs as well as apple cider, and plant my garden every year. They are an invaluable service to the average "underfunded" Missoulian homeowner.

When the dust settles on this era, urban organizations in the early 21st century focused on regional self-reliance and energy and resource conservation will be looked upon as the most important. These are the people that get it. MUD is 30 years old now. It was and remains ahead of its time. A true leader in its field, setting the example. Living the dream. Helping each other. Inspiring others.

I have been aware and used the services of MUD since it's inception. This nonprofit has been an invaluable source in our community, from sponsoring and organizing activities to educating the general public on sustainable living. I have used tools from their Tool Library, gone to workshops from on raising chickens, pruning trees and building coldframes. I am the advisor for a local high schools recycling/sustainabliity club and MUD has been there to answer questions and help students get involved. I could not have done half of what I do to live sustainablity without the support of MUD.

have it be open for longer periods of time. I am sure the reason it isn't is due to costs.

MUD is a really fantastic organisation. They have been active in the Missoula community long enough to become a local institution, and from personal experience, their tool library is a one-of-a-kind asset for low and medium income home owners. Thanks, MUD!

The tool library is an incredible resource for the neighborhood. It has saved us hundreds of dollars in tools. We have been able to increase the value of our historic house (1906!) and by default the value of our neighborhood because of MUD. Thanks!

This place is awesome! I have borrowed many great tools from the tool library and have also borrowed the truck! I think it is a great way to promote sustainable living. I mean, we don't all need a grass seed spreader, right? Sharing is awesome!

I joined MUD over a year ago and just rejoined at the end of 2010. MUD's annual Garden Party was the very first event that I went to after moving to Missoula in the fall of 2009. What an extraordinary community of DIY gardeners, carpenters, artists, and best of all, neighbors.

MUD provides wonderful services to the Missoula community through its tool library, truck share and excellent workshops. More importantly though, through these services MUD provides an alternate way of thinking about resources and how we use them, an alternate economy that helps to bring people together and build community. It is this kind of far-reaching and creative thinking that I value in a non-profit and I am excited to be part of MUD's vision for the future.
