Dirt is a vanilla block that spawns on the surface of almost every biome in Middle-earth. Check the category page for more types of dirt.
Dirt is an essential ingredient for growing almost all kinds of crops. It is also necessary for the creation of Elven portals, and the crafting of multiple items, including waste blocks, dirt path, Torog stew, Morwaith bricks, thatch, and even bonemeal.
- From Public Beta 28 until Public Beta 33, players could right click bare dirt with seeds to make them into grass blocks. Of course, bare dirt will grass over in time anyway, but this helped speed up the process greatly, and also allowed players to make grass blocks in places like the Far Harad jungle where grass didn't spread naturally from mud to dirt.
