WHAT IS DIRT RICH EDUCATION?
Dirt Rich Education revolves around sustainable practices in our personal lives and our community.

Sustainable practices may include, but are not limited to:

Learning sustainable skills empowers individuals and families to live a healthier life, with pride in their ability to control their environment and food source.
