DIRT GROUP Global is a Minnesota based 501(c)3 charitable nonprofit focused on research, development, and education related to applied theory and neuroscience in practice. DIRT GROUP has been recognized for work in children's mental health, food security, and social justice through applied theory in practice, recent findings in neuroscience, and program development. DIRT GROUP seeks to recognize and affirm the ancient wisdom & practices of Indigenous People living in harmony and attunement with Nature and acknowledge we exist on stolen Dakotah Land. The church itself, was built in the 1850's and moved to this location from about one mile south near where the Forest City Stockade which was erected during "the Sioux Uprising of1862". This tragic time in Minnesota/US history is now more euphemistically referred to as the "Dakotah Conflict". After thousands of years living in relationship and harmony with nature as stewards to these lands; their land was stolen--they were murdered and displaced justified through the continued denial and projection of the real moral failures.

The Resilient Healing Institute, DIRT GROUP Global's research, development, and training headquarters, exists on the land and in the actual church and rectory buildings of St. Gertrude's Catholic Church. It is our hope, belief, and intention to highlight timely and meaningful implications across settings and contexts and to serve as a conduit to facilitate co-creation of safety, connection, health, & well-being grounded in social justice as new systems which exist at the core of human & planetary well-being, sustainability, and equity.

Trauma-informed and trauma-responsive, DIRT GROUP is a children's mental health & youth development application rooted in social and emotional learning in the context of gardening, farming, foods, and creative arts projects. DIRT GROUP WORLD is the new RPG version of DIRT GROUP and represents an opportunities for meaningful social engagement through a platform ranging from completely virtual to completely in-person and everywhere in-between depending on participant circumstances. DIRT GROUP is an emerging grounded theory which integrates constructs from experiential learning theory, symbolic interactionism, polyvagal theory, Bowen's theory, the interpersonal theory of suicide, and principles of Social Justice Youth Work.
