After School Programs



Dirt Club has started! We will be hosting Dirt Club again in Spring, so stay tuned!

It's harvest time! This Fall, Dirt Club students will harvest and enjoy produce straight from their school gardens while participating in hands-on gardening activities. Join us in exploring creepy, crawly decomposers, making scarecrows and creating art inspired by the fall blooms.

Dirt Club is a four-week program available to 1st - 4th grade students at Needham, Park, and Riverview Elementary Schools. Each day a healthy snack will be provided courtesy of Durango Natural Foods. Additionally, each school will have an alternative meeting place in the case of inclement weather. Please meet with your school's lead garden educator on the first day of Dirt Club for relocation information. 

Dirt Club tuition is $40 per student and unlimited scholarships are available at each elementary. Payments and scholarship forms can be turned in at Dirt Club. 

To apply for a Dirt Club scholarship, please complete our Scholarship Form.

Scholarship forms can be filled out and emailed to
