A locally grown and uniquely Missoula event now in its 17th year, Spontaneous Construction (SponCon) is a building contest and a celebration of reuse featuring great local bands, food, and free activities for all ages. Teams compete to build their greatest creations using any of the materials available at Home ReSource over seven hours amidst a party atmosphere that’s fun – and safe – for the whole family.
A panel of judges select the winning creations, which are taken to the Banquet & Benefit Auction where friends and supporters come together to enjoy locally-sourced dinner and learn about the ways Home ReSource is helping build a more vibrant and sustainable Missoula. The live auction features the top SponCon creations and the silent auction offers supporters the opportunity to bid on select SponCon creations as well as local artwork, furniture, services, and unique experiences.
These events raise essential funds and awareness for our Community Sustainability Programs, which are teaching job skills to Missoulians in need, promoting environmental stewardship for our youngest Zero Waste Ambassadors, and educating community members at all levels about how to reduce waste & build a vibrant and sustainable local economy.
While our retail store is self-supporting, these programs require outside funding and would not be possible without generous community supporters.
