Dirt Crew takes place during the school year with youth who have completed Seed Crew—expanding upon that intensive summer experience.

Young people in Dirt Crew dedicate Saturdays and after-school hours to deepen their knowledge and leadership in areas of sustainable agriculture, food justice, and social justice. Additionally, youth build skills in communication, problem-solving, and more.

To apply their knowledge, Dirt Crew builds raised-bed gardens in Lynn and Dorchester/Roxbury, leads volunteers on our urban and suburban farms, supports community events, plants seedlings, and much more.
