DJ hand making a beautiful snowman decoration!  Thank you very much to Maryann and Donnie Brittingham for donating wood materials to make these decorations!

Denise made beautiful decorations too!  We especially love this project because the wood materials donated by Maryann and Donnie were up-cycled.  One man’s trash is another man’s treasure!

This is a picture of the 501 Horn Silica that Brandon made at an Educational Farming event hosted by Perennial Roots Farm!  What is 501 Horn Silica?  It is a biodynamic preparation of manure that can be used to make a spray that will fertilize and strengthen our ENTIRE garden!

DSCF3113

The Horn Silica must be buried and dug up again in the spring in order for it to develop into usable fertilizer.  We would like to thank the Perennial Roots Farm for hosting this event, the Eastern Shore of Virginia Resource Conservation And Development Council for providing No Limits with scholarship tickets to attend the event, and the Future Harvest Foodshed Field School for providing very interesting educational workshops on the Eastern Shore!
