I love MUD! The tool library is my favorite and such an amazing asset to the community. MUD is one of the best non-profits around and is an amazing model for a healthy community!

The Great!

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

Being able to access tools at the tool library that are shared amongst the community rather than having to purchase them.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Increasing the number of hours per week the tool library is open.

My wife and I joined MUD a few years back and have enjoyed our association with other members/volunteers. We are users of the tool library more than any of the other of the organization's assets and programs. We have had the good fortune to borrow a compound mitre saw, a compressed air nail gun, ladders, and several other items to perform work on our daughter's house. Aside from teaching sustainable lifestyle options, the tool library is in our opinion the most important function (including truck share for hauling the tools) MUD offers. It allows people to have access to expensive tools that may only be used once a year without having to purchase and store them.

I have used the tool library and have seen the results of some of the sustainability methods taught at MUD.

The tool library and the truck share programs need to be more visible and more accessable to the public at large. This could be accomplished by moving them to a larger, more centralized facility.

Mud is a very helpful resource to our community. I have personally been a member of the MUD Tool Library for a few years, & without it I know our home would be falling apart. I've borrowed lawn mowers, painting tools, plastering tools, saws, and so much more to help maintain, repair, &
weatherize our home. We could never have afforded to purchase all of these tools, but our membership fees allowed us to be able to share them through MUD. The staff is always friendly, & I wish I had more time to attend their excellent demonstrations.

My home would be falling apart without MUD's tool library. Literally, the ceiling would be on the floor.

I only wish that their hours were longer, but I know that the volunteers are extremely busy. I also wish that their fundraising events were alcohol-free.

MUD is a fantastic resource for all Missoulians. I've worked there and taken advantage of their classes and their tool library, and it helped me obtain an education award through VISTA. I can't explain how much the organization has grown and supported Missoula all of these years- It's simply a fundamental example of how a community-centered organization should function.

I've personally experienced the results of this org in many ways- one of which I got to assist a low-income housing complex organized and develop a rooftop garden.

I would get them more money so they could help more Missoulians!

MUD is a fantastic organization. Frugal, grass-roots, sustainable, and making a big impact in the community, there isn't much more one can expect from a social benefit organization. And unlike so many other orgs, MUD has stayed true to its mission and hasn't expanded just because it has been so successful. It has been devoted to its core principles for years, and offers huge value-added service to the community.

...services offered. I have been a member in the past, but have continued to support MUD even after I moved outside their immediate community reach.

I would add a satellite tool library, especially for general yard tools and possibly just a locked shed, in other parts of town.

MUD is one of Missoula's treasure organizations. Supporting urban sustainable living, MUD's Backyard Sustainability workshop series always introduces something new and makes the subject matter accessible to everyone! The Tool Library and Truck Share make it possible for any Missoulian to work on their home and/or garden regardless of whether they own the necessary equipment. I love Missoula Urban Demonstration Project & proud to be a member.

I've been on the MUD Board for almost 4 years now and it has been an amazing experience. We have built the organization to where we have a great Board, strong staff and programs (tool library, truck share, workshops, demonstration site, and youth education). MUD celebrates 30 years in Missoula in 2011. I'm so proud to be a part of its rich history in this community.

The Great!

helping me learn about nonprofit governance, working with a team of volunteers, demonstrating sustainability to the community

move the tool library and truck share to a more visible, accessible location and turn the Northside site back into a full-scale residential demonstration (which is in the works right now through a capital campaign)
