SENECA    Dirt has been associated with being impure, foul or unclean.  Through advertising and rhetoric, generations have received misinformation "our soil is bad"!  The truth is  "dirt supports our existence". Without the the soil and earth we would perish.

DIRT to FOOD Project  The name of the project is a study in and of itself.  D2F is a CU student lead organization dedicated to increasing sustainability, creating a food network and educating Clemson University & surrounding areas about fresh, local grown food.
