Gather & Make
Open to all ages | Free of charge | Designed to build community
DIRT’s original offerings were multi-generational experiences, open to all ages, free of charge and designed to build community. These 60 minute sessions were held in our outdoor learning center behind Ma’s restaurant on Pine Street and the Central Point Library during cooler wet months. This program was born of the idea that children could learn alongside adults given the correct support and setting. We have explored bee education, rain water catchment, origami, hand building with clay, the list goes on and on. These programs started in 2014 and have developed into the Gather and Make Series ran primarily out of our permanent location at Skyrman Arboretum.
