MUD is a great resource for Missoula residents. If only every town had more MUD in their back yards.

I've been involved with MUD for more than 11 years. First as a very sporadic volunteer, then a Board member for 4 years, back to a sporadic volunteer, and now as a dedicated Tool Library user. MUD has been many things during its lifespan. It will never be a traditional success nor approach perfection, yet it continues to sustain, adapt, and inspire. Thus it has achieved a paradoxical manner of success and perfection I deeply admire.

Never hold another strategic planning session. EVER! Planning was meant for and should be restricted to penance for government agencies and corporate boards. Dream, theorize, talk it through, try it, keep it going or start again. That's MUD. That's how it works best.

I have worked with MUD as a volunteer in the past. I was very poor and needed bedding plants for my garden. MUD gave me the opportunity to work in exchange for the plants I needed. Way to help community members support healthy lifestyles. The tool library is also and excellent resource for our community.

One of the best things about MUD is its longevity. MUD has been advocating sustainability in Missoula since the 70's as I understand the history. Good job!

I volunteered a day to distribute organic fertilizer to the public. It was quite an interesting asssortment of takers filing through in old pick-ups and new Volvo's. Everybody appreciated the product, though shoveling it was tough. The experience was good opportunity to help out the community with a valuable natural product. Manure happens!

MUD has been a great resource to Missoula. Personally, to know there is a place I can go to share tools and avoid adding to the multiplication of resources is invaluable to me. I have also gained new techniques from how to build a straw bale structure to composting to outdoor pathways by volunteering there and through their many workshops. They also throw some of the best garden parties in town!

I've learned a lot since I became a member with MUD. This organization gives Missoulians the tools they need to live a more sustainable lifestyle. I have given my time to help teach girl scouts about recycling by making paper mache with them. I have also spent a lot of time in the native garden, weeding and redoing the landscape so kids can come through and learn about native plants.
MUD is a genuine organization filled with amazing people who volunteer their time to make Missoula a better place.

The Tool Library and Truck Share programs are a way to help me make my home more sustainable and to help your non-contactor home owner access tools to complete projects. The social events to get people together to work on and do demonstartions of proctical and useful ideas to make "green living" do-able on a budget. MUD has also become the Cornerstone partner in the annual Earth Day Festival w. the University of Montana and other organizations.
