April 10, 2014

MISSOULA – The University of Montana Forum for Living with Appropriate Technology, better known as the UM FLAT house, invites the UM and Missoula communities to its annual Earth Week Barbecue from 3 to 6 p.m. Friday, April 25, at 633 S. 5th St. E.

The event will feature local food with both meat and vegetarian options, live music, a silent auction and demonstrations of exciting new sustainable projects. The silent auction will feature a variety of handmade items and some big-ticket surprises.

Attendees can enjoy food and wander around the house and property to see what the UM FLAT students have worked on this year: native plant landscaping, a new greenhouse, a renovated chicken run with a new flock of chickens, worm composting and more.

Admission is free and open to the public, with a suggested donation of $3 to $5 if you plan to eat.
