For nearly 30 years, MUD Workshops have provided Missoulians with hands-on experiences in self-reliance. Our workshops teach topics that help you live lighter on the land and lighter on your budget, including Beer Brewing, Cheese Making, Small Engine Repair, Basic Auto Mechanics, Alternative Energy, Tiling, a Start-to-Finish Gardening Series, and much more! Ranging in skill level from introductory/basic to highly skilled, our workshops pair you with local experts in the field who not only show you the techniques but also encourage you to try them yourself.

These workshops are for YOU, so feel free to contact MUD with suggestions on future workshop topics or instructors!
