I am fairly new to Missoula--have been here about 2 weeks now--and when I went to Earth Day this Sunday, I popped over to see the carousel. I was really impressed. Paul told me a bit of the story behind it, that one guy, Chuck, started making carousel horses, school kids donated their change to gradually raise $10,000 (or 1 million pennies), along with other donors and artists. The intention behind it is awesome. And of course, it totally made me feel wonderful to watch this one little boy on the dragon go round and round beaming, like he was in flight:)

Here is the link to Paul and Geoff Badanoch's podcast on the carousel. It also covers the Missoula Farmers Market: http://www.richsoil.com/permaculture/292-podcast-031-missoula-carousel-farmers-market/
