Dirt Corps’ mission is to create access to green careers for all people, working towards a healthy environment, engaged communities, and a sustainable economy throughout the Puget Sound region.
We are a collaborative team of professionals and community partners working together to increase access to green jobs and to foster healthy communities.
As a team we are both a well trained partnership of tradespeople, and a collective of mentors and teachers. Through hands-on training with a focus on rain garden and cistern design/build, operations and maintenance, vegetation management, and ecological restoration, we aim to pass on our strategies to others in a growing field of green jobs.
Dirt Corps stands in solidarity with BIPOC communities and the goals of the Black Lives Matter movement. Our pledge is to provide paid training opportunities and access to green careers for all people interested, regardless of experience, and with the specific intent to increase access for people systematically excluded from the environmental field.
Dirt Corps acknowledges that we are in occupied Duwamish territory.
