DIRT GROUP is a trauma-informed, children’s mental health application based in social and emotional learning in the context of a gardening/farming/food/creative arts project. Grounded and informed by 5 major theories and recent findings in neuroscience, DIRT GROUP provides participants an experientially rich context with which to learn, practice, and master important life skills related to social and emotional intelligence and neuroplasticity. DIRT GROUP provides tangible outcomes in increased competency, preparation for life, pride and ownership, the “BIG RIPPLE” effect (opportunities to participate and contribute in the community), and social inclusion (Turck, 2011) which serve to increase overall well-being.
