One resource I have really enjoyed is "Missoula Community News".  In fact, it is my use of that resource that got me thinking that it would be really great to have a missoula eco forum.  MCN is great for pushing info out, but it was not intended for conversation, or building ideas.  And some folks are feeling like they would rather not get some of the stuff that comes across there (one of the downsides with a mailing list).  With a forum, it is very easy to skip over the stuff you don't care about and focus on the stuff that you do care about.

To  subscribe, send email to: Missoula-Community-News-on@vortex.wildrockies.org

That was the Zootown Arts Community Center. Or "the ZACC". Not actually an eco-driven organization, but Missoula loves to work together and the ZACC is a great example of that. They are barely over a year old and have already established themselves as a sort of central point for all kinds of cool and interesting events.

zootownarts.com

It makes me happy to see all of these sites. I didn't even know that half of them existed!

Eko Compost!!!

Took a tour there last year.  One of the coolest eco businesses around.  Talk about closing the loop.  Great idea.

They do use bio solids from the waste water treatment plant. I asked about heavy metal pollution and the guy giving the tour told me that the heat generated by the composting combined with whatever chemical reactions happen renders everything safe.  Also he said there's not lots of pollutants in the environment around Missoula to begin with, so there's not much in the end product.  I have lots of friends who grow veggies in eko compost and they look and taste phenomenal.

I wasn't sure if it counted. The administrator lives here, but I haven't seen any intention to focus on Missoula. Does that make it a no?

One Thousand New Gardens
http://1000newgardens.ning.com/

This group encourages converting (back)yards to gardens and aims to help start 1000 new gardens in Missoula over the next five years.  We do this by helping gardeners get started and by providing connections, information and support. We don't want to do what others do better but are willing to partner with others whose aim is the same as ours.  We support healthy gardening practices but are not ideologically pure. The path is long and we want everyone to start the journey where they are and arrive alive and unbloodied.

I think that if the author is in missoula, then, yes, it counts.

I joined!

I found some stuff really hard to read.  Like the colors might not be set quite right yet.
