I'm partnering with a friend to create a beautiful vegetable garden this year. I'm just learned how to make a "hot compost pile." And, I've been letting my horses graze on the lawn instead of starting up the lawn mower!

Hi Ginger, my daughter Rosalie is interested in meeting with you to see what you do there. She is interested to do something with animal therapy for her eighth grade project. Is there a good time and number to reach you at?
Hi Ginger, We used to live at Inspiration Farm. Now we have a home in the Birchwood neighborhood. We are getting a nice garden going and have a few hens and bunnies. I'm wanting to turn lawn into more vegetable garden and I'd like to get some manure to sheet mulch it. It will take a while to get enough manure from the hens and bunnies. So I'm wondering if you have any extra horse manure that we could have or buy or trade for. I'm concerned about getting manure that doesn't have the dread herbicide in it. So it matters what your horses have been eating as the herbicide will be in hay that is fed to horses and cows, then go through their systems un broken down into their manure. Do you know about this herbicide issue? Do you have manure that we could have?
Hi Ginger! So glad you are hosting an event at your farm with horses! I've heard of your work before. I too have worked in the mental health field! I'm not sure if I'll be able to attend, but I do look forward to someday seeing the land & animals you care for! I have visited some of the Steiner-Biodynamic Communities in the east, and a few of them work with horses/mules in the field, and also work with individuals with disabilities....We need some animal/people/cart trails throughout county and a few into town!
Yay, I am so glad you are joining the Revolution!! I went to a gardening meeting today and happened to meet David MacLeod, who designed this site. He does live at Inspiration Farm in Laurel and I mentioned you and he said you had joined this site. He is a very nice man. We should go visit their farm sometime.
