We are now proud partners with Vulcan Quarry of Manassas! Not only have they been kind enough to pay for and install our new fence, but they have offered to pay for and install sod in the spring. HOW MUCH LUCKIER CAN WE GET!!!!
Thank you to the Salentine family for donating three new books to our B.R.E.A.T.H.E. curriculum cabinet. They are all awesome books and I know the teachers and children will love them!
A huge THANK YOU goes to Vulcan Quarry for paying and installing the new fence around the garden. It looks fabulous!!!
Black Swallowtail Caterpillars Spotted
Not only are we growing Monarchs, but we are also becoming a habitat for Black Swallowtail butterflies too! Several caterpillars were discovered munching on our Dill plants, which is one of their prefered food sources. Like Monarchs, Black Swallowtails are also in trouble due to loss of habitat in our area. I think their arrival in our garden is nature's way of telling us we need to do more to help them. So, look for a dedicated bed of host plants in the spring which will encourage the Black Swallowtail to lay eggs at B.R.E.A.T.H.E.
Partnership with Vulcan Quarry
Bristow Run and Vulcan Quarry of Manassas have entered into a partnership together. Vulcan Quarry is committed to helping us improve and maintain B.R.E.A.T.H.E. Starting this weekend, Vulcan Quarry will be installing a wonderful new fence which they have kindly donated. Once the weather improves, they will return to help us dig up all the weeds and mulch and lay down sod. Bristow Run could not be more excited by this partnership. VULCAN QUARRY ROCKS!
