The Western Montana Fair hosts an entire event dedicated to reuse. The Creative Reuse Division is an upcycling exhibit that showcases reuse art in all forms. As of 2019, the Western Montana Fair is excited to join Missoula’s ZERO by FIFTY initiative, to reduce 90% of the material sent to the landfill by 2050. In line with that commitment, the 2019 theme is Green Thumbs and Pie Crumbs!

Spontaneous Construction

Home ReSource’s annual festival of creative reinvention

SponCon is the nitty-est, gritty-est, smashin-est, bashin-est, clangin-est, bangin-est, creativist, barbaloot savin-est party in town!

Designed to inspire a culture of reuse with a free, engaging community activity, Spontaneous Construction, or “SponCon” for short, has become an annual Missoula tradition. Contest participants have seven hours to use their choice of Home ReSource materials to build the most beautiful, functional, and creative pieces they can dream up.

As one of Missoula’s original Zero Waste events, volunteers opportunities abound!

Fixit Clinic

Home ReSource and partners invite you to exercise your right to repair!

A Fixit Clinic is a "pop-up" event where people bring their broken things to learn how to repair them. Trying to fix something can be intimidating! Everyone is welcome, even if you have never even attempted to fix something before. Volunteer Fixit Coaches can help you repair broken, worn, or malfunctioning stuff by sharing their knowledge & skills. The result is technology demystified, more people empowered with simple repair know-how, and less stuff trashed & replaced.
