MUD has been a leader in guiding many Missoula folks to practice a sustainable life style. This group offers many workshops and demonstrations that help others actually learn how to start their own gardens, store local food, use shared tools, build greenhouses and straw-bale walls, compost, build gray water systems, recycle, and the list goes on!

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

I have witnessed many individuals being inspired by the practices they learn in the MUD workshops and changing their lifestyles.

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

Wish that they could find the funding to build a larger tool library.

I have followed this organization for years, and they have proven to be an invaluable addition and contributer to Missoula's upward growth and knowledge base for simple home repairs, community reinvigoration, and spreading hope and inspiration from person to person. Anyone who values community investment would do well to check them out and attend some of their seminars and classes.
One of my favorite classes taught us how to construct a lettuce planter box using old glass doors, to help protect the seedlings from the unpredictable spring weather.

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

Multiple classes, seen community involvement grow all over Missoula as a result of MUD's work, and heard countless stories over the years from people who have attended their workshops.

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

GIve them more resources!

I love MUD as a community resource for Missoula and a model for similar work around the world!

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

I had a garden plot at the Northside Community Garden when it was run by MUD and I used to borrow tools from the tool library all the time. I attended workshops and other events.

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

I would help them to better publicize their work so more people could access their incredible resources!
