Aged Horse Manure, Compost, and Bamboo Needed!

This e-mail was sent via the Contact Page.

Hello!

My name is Katherine Dennis and I am a Hendrix College student. A few students and I are working on expanding the current >organic garden we have here on campus. We conducted a soil test in order to find out what we should add to the soil to make it most productive. From that, we determined we need aged horse manure and compost. We also are looking for bamboo posts to act as trellises for our plants.

Do you have any sources of aged horse manure, compost, or bamboo we could get in contact with? Read more »
