What people say about Power in Dirt

“Maintaining the lots enhances a neglected part of the community while providing me with a personal outlet of solace and calm in this rough city. “ –Chris, Hollins Market

“Power in Dirt made it so easy for my organization to find and adopt a lot in the community.  The residents that live near the lot are happy that we are creating a pocket park, and during our first workday a neighbor visited the lot with his dog. I'm glad to see that someone is already using the lot!” –Tim, Pen Lucy
