One our subscribers, Katie Fellman, donated a city lot in the Northside neighborhood of Fort Wayne to be used to support Dirt Wain’s efforts. Our long term plans are to turn the site into a demonstration prairie, compost, and garden site, making the connection between composting, healing the soil, remediating, and restoring Indiana landscapes. It will be developed as a place to build community and awareness.
We have partnered with Blue Heron Ministries, a non-profit organization that conserves and protects native landscapes. They are leading the design and development of the planting of native species. Dick’s Organics will be providing long term support and fruit and nut bushes for the site.
The site will be used for free workshops on native plants, composting, gardening, soil remediation, and healing land.
