Adults will have the chance to learn about the newest techniques in gardening and composting, check out the newest in outdoor activity gear, and visit with a variety of vendors offering an array of products and insight

But that’s not all. Dirt Day participants can also make a craft from recycled materials with the Scrap Exchange, paint with mud, meet owls and other rescued wildlife, and rub elbows with Master Gardeners and outdoor educators from the NC Museum of Natural Science.

Offering music, dancing in the street and culinary delights from downtown’s wonderful assortment of restaurants and food vendors, Dirt Day offers the perfect opportunity to shake off the winter blues and get involved with an outdoor group that shares your interests.
