Essential Stuff Project

Bigfork, Montana

Our Mission:

We build community, live sustainably, preserve and cultivate local resources, and encourage discussion on issues such as: surviving escalating fuel costs and potential shortages, preparing and eating healthful foods, and minimizing our ecological footprint through implementation of permaculture and bio-dynamic principles.  

We hold monthly gatherings to explore these and other issues of relevance to a continuously sustainable, local community.
