What is D.I.R.T.

Direct Involvement Recreation Teaching

Direct Involvement Recreation Teaching, DIRT, brings hands on education to the community through recreational activities; we learn by doing- and we grow! Our projects are multi faceted, we direct our attention to underutilized properties, create space for learning, and in turn, create community.

These acts are changing our urban climate- we are being the change we wish to see in the world today!




You are the designer of your world, so play!

Only a couple of rules: Play nice, and kind, and gentle

We are on the same road, respect yourself, each other, and all creatures about you. 


Dream, believe, and be the change!

If you can dream it, you can do it. This park was built on a little dream to convert an old parking lot into a useful place for children to learn. You really can do anything you put your mind to. Let us know your dream and how we can help. 

What drives D.I.R.T.

“Everything that is done in the world is done by hope”

Martin Luther King Jr.
