I am excited to announce a collaborative partnership with NDMA in Hutchinson, MN! DIRT GROUP WORLD, Inc. and 4BubbasFoods are partnering with NDMA to provide over 100 heirloom plants and even more seeds to families from NDMA to begin gardens on campus. DIRT GROUP WORLD, Inc. !!! More to come!!!
I’m hearing a lot of excitement in young people’s voices as the weather continues to hold and reach into the 70+ degrees (Fahrenheit) in this part of Minnesota. I just returned a few days ago from Earthrise Farm with my good, good friends Kay and Annette Fernholz (the sisters’ squared!) and was SO IMPRESSED with how everything is growing so well! I hope to do a short video to encompass the original planting dates March 7, 8, 9 and return trips since as the greenhouse comes alive!
DIRT GROUP participants did a group skills training day at Earthrise in early March and planted things for their garden starts and i then returned for two days to plant the rest of the greenhouse nearly full to capacity! The pictures are amazing but here is a link to a short video I took and posted in the greenhouse this past weekend. https://www.facebook.com/video.php?v=338389036356414&set=vb.337949699733681&type=2&theater
The extra sound is from the exhaust fans!
Here are some pics from the planting through this past weekend:
4BubbasFoods has garlic growing, cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, potatoes, and more going in…DIRT GROUP Participants will be receiving items from 4BubbasFoods Cold Crop Collection to begin their planting as well ! ! !
And on Sunday April 26th, Kenny will have the distinct pleasure and honor to present a MHED Talk on DIRT GROUP at the “The largest children’s mental health conference in the nation” Minnesota Association for Children’s Mental Health State Conference (MACMH). Here is a description from MACMH’s website:
“MHED Talks is a presentation series in the spirit of TED Talks. Using stories – both personal and experiences from the field – speakers will be given 18 minutes to share their expertise on new concepts, programs, treatment models, research and healthcare trends.”
DIRT GROUP is coming…
