19th Annual Spontaneous Construction at Home ReSource
Spontaneous Construction (SponCon) is an annual building competition and festival of reuse that happens at Home ReSource, Missoula’s only Community Sustainability Center!
Everyone is invited to join us during the seven-hour building competition in supporting our amazing teams while also getting your own hands dirty with plenty of reuse projects hosted by many other community and sustainability-minded organizations like YWCA GUTS!, Animal Wonders, National Wildlife Federation, Families First Learning Lab, and Girls Scouts of Montana and Wyoming. From DIY reuse and repurposed solar oven to garden barrels to pet toys – these projects are all free and family-friendly.
The Home ReSource ReUse Store will be open for all your building materials needs and donations during the event. In the parking lot you will find activities, food and beverages will be available for purchase, and live music throughout the day! Are you ready for the nittiest, grittiest, barb-a-looten-est party in town?

Our Mission:The Missoula Underground is a hyper-local blog about the best the Missoula area has to offer: food/beverages, music, events, activities, local people and business.
Hyper-local means we don’t write about anything that isn't owned or locally managed or operated in the Missoula area. No corporate chains or businesses operated by investment groups from out of Montana.
We have a growing all-volunteer team of bloggers and contributors. We’re here because we care about our beloved Missoula area and want to showcase the best of what's here and what we love to do.
When you share our articles, you become part of a force for good in and around Missoula.
