"Enhancing Agricultural Opportunities for Military Veterans Grants" MARCH 23, 2021. The purpose for this US Department of Agriculture program is to increase the number of military veterans pursuing knowledge and ...

We have formed a Delaware 501 C 3 Hope Floats for Veterans. Charitable status has been applied for from the IRS. We should get a confirmation within a couple of weeks.

One of our goals for 2021 is to establish a Permaculture food forest. It will require 100s of apple, pear, plum and nitrogen fixers tree stock. The tree stock tend to be very expensive. We will also need mountains of compost, oceans of compost tea, stacks of cardboard, truck loads of wood chips and bales of straw for mulch. It will be a fun project.

I like the inspiring wisdom found in this old Chinese proverb: "The best time to plant a tree was 20 years ago. The second best time is now."

We have been successful in grafting elderberry bushes, grape vines and many different flowers which will help keep our cost down. When the snow melts we will need to confirm that they made it thru the bitter cold of the winter polar vortex! -18! I did mulch them.

Mantra: "Building with infinite stuff and regenerating it for compounding wealth."
