Sage Mountain Solar Workshops, Seminars Available Year Around
Twenty-five minutes east of Butte, Montana, Sage Mountain Center sits at 6,400 feet surrounded by the peaks of the Rocky Mountains. As a retreat and education center, SMC is dedicated "to promoting deeper awareness of self and the environment." For the last nine years, photovoltaic panels have supplied 100 percent of SMC's electricity needs while passive solar design and solar thermal applications have supplied 90 percent of its heating and hot water. SMC's sustainable living programs include year-around workshops in solar electricity, solar living and sustainable building, straw-bale and cordwood construction, and more.
Founders Christopher Borton and Linda Welsh, have created a state-of-the-art learning center, bringing into harmony low-tech and high-tech living. Tours, field trips, and private classes are available year around. SMC also takes selected seminars "on the road" to cities throughout Montana.
