I am looking to find more like minded folks to converse about sustainable living... I am currently researching and working on Yurt, Yomes, Rocket Mass Heater and Gasifiers... Looking to expand my social network here in the Zoo...... Are there meetings, potlucks or gatherings. I would love to host a potluck dinner if any one is interested... My band MudSlide Charley is really interested as well in helping to promote a gathering and expo...
Tahj, I love to cook stews and stir frys (made from mostly organic or local ingredients when possible) and bring them to potlucks. If you're having one, I'd love to come to share food and conversation.
I suppose I could also mention that there's a group of local folks that get together to eat and share vegetarian food, potluck-style in front of the Missoula county courthouse every Sunday afternoon at 4pm. We call that one Food Not Bombs. All are welcome to join in. (It's been happening since long before the Occupy Missoula stuff started up, although since that began, there has been a fair degree of cross-pollination between Occupy and FNB.)
I'm also interested in learning to build a rocket mass heater, though I have virtually no experience with it except listening to some of Paul Wheaton's library lectures and videos. Hands-on learning while working with someone who has more knowledge and experience than I is something I seek.
Interesting! Sound Good with the soup/ We are having a raw food potluck on friday, open invite to both... I think the presentation would be a great idea. What about the TOPHAT ? Early on a off night, have Dodgy Mountain Men and MudSlide Play after the presentation while we share food? Promotion on this end may be tight but you have made a dent in the community that you could cash in. I will talk with some of the other folks and see what kind of support we can muster.
