HOW TO USE FROG HOLLER HELPER/BIODYNAMIC GARDEN SOIL
Biodynamic Garden Soil is alive. DO NOT ROTOTIL IT. Disturb it as little as possible when building your garden beds. Do not mix it in with existing soil or compost. If you dilute it, it will be harder for the microbes and many other living organisms to recover and multiply. Let them move into the existing soil around them on their own. One earthworm population can move 18 tons of soil in a year. Let them mix it in the right way. Also, when you water or it rains, the black compost tea will saturate the existing soil under it and the microbes will move into it, eventually creating the same environment as the Biodynamic Garden Soil. If you want, break up or rototill your existing soil or compost and then apply Frog Holler Helper on top.
EASY SOIL CALCULATOR: http://www.gardeners.com/Soil-Calculator/7558,default,pg.html
FOR EXISTING BEDS: Apply 6 - 10 inches of Biodynamic Garden Soil on top of your existing beds or compost. Do not thin to less than 6 inches deep or you will be drying out and damaging the microbes in the soil. As soon as possible, cover with 1- 2 inches of shredded hardwood mulch, garden hay or leaf mold as soon as possible to keep the soil moist and healthy. Do not use double or triple ground mulch which is ground to a powder that will pack down and cause rain run off and lack of oxygen to the soil and plant roots. Do not use pine mulch unless you are building a bed for acid loving plants such as blueberries or rhododendrons.
FOR NEW BEDS: Cut the grass or weeds short, apply a layer of 4-5 sheets of newspapers and wet it. Apply Biodynamic Garden Soil 10-12 inches deep on top of the newspaper and shape your beds. As soon as possible, cover with 1- 2 inches of shredded hardwood mulch, garden hay or leaf mold as soon as possible to keep the soil moist and healthy. Do not use double or triple ground mulch which is ground to a powder that will pack down and cause rain run off and lack of oxygen to the soil and plant roots. Do not use pine mulch unless you are building a bed for acid loving plants such as blueberries or rhododendrons.
WEEDS: Our last two batches of Frog Holler Helper had a germination level of what appeared to be 100%. That means, not only will your vegetable and flower seeds grow great, but also every weed seed that ends up on the Biodynamic Garden Soil from the wind, birds or weeds going to seed in your beds. Mulching will not only improve the health of your soil but will also place a barrier between weed seeds and the soil and help alleviate most germination of weed seeds. For those stubborn ones that do get through, they pull out of the loose soil easily. Just pat the mulch back in place so the soil does not show. If you use compost containing horse manure or other high weed seed materials, make sure it is buried deep to smother the weed seeds.
STARTING SEEDS IN SEED TRAYS: We use straight Frog Holler Helper and it works great. You may have to pick the worms out before seeding so they do not disturb your seeds.
STARTING SEEDS IN THE GARDEN: Just pull the mulch back to expose the Biodynamic Garden Soil and seed straight into it. For things like lettuce, I just make a trench and sprinkle the seeds on the soil, water in and water daily until they are up about a half inch and then I water less.
TOMATOES: For tomatoes to be disease-free (12 years so far at both Frog Holler locations with no spraying or covering), use at least one-foot by one-foot at each plant base.
WATER: If you are on city water with chlorine, it is much healthier for your garden soil and plants to collect and use rain water. You can attach a rain barrel to a downspout on your house and cover it with a screen to keep mosquitoes out. Either scoop it out from the top or buy or make one with a spigot near the bottom to attach a garden hose. (If your watering area is not uphill from your rain barrel.)
TESTIMONIALS . . .
Allan and I were able to take a look at Frog Holler Helper under the microscope and he said, "That's some pretty damned good stuff!" He'd like to do a more thorough analysis and see what you've got, and he normally doesn't go to that sort of trouble unless he's impressed. I think it was the biological diversity that got him. When I took a gander, there wasn't a spot under the scope that wasn't moving or swirling in some way, and there were plenty of beneficial fungal hyphae, spores waiting to sprout and even a beneficial nematode... it was like the whole sample was vibrating. Good stuff! Keith Nicholson
Keep up the good work. The veggies I planted in your fabulous mix are going bonkers--very big and happy. Thank you!
. . . I live off Betsy's Gap . . . . got 11 guineas from you in May. Also soil and mulch! Everyone's tomatoes have the blight from all the rain I heard, but mine are beautiful - in fact, my entire garden is doing great! I know your soil is the reason. It was well worth the investment . . . Lea
We planted our fall leaf and root crops using your biodynamics calendar and the results were amazing! Where it normally takes a week or more for seeds to sprout, they were up in just 3 days, and growing at a healthy pace. Lettuce, kale, chard, carrot--they are all doing exceptionally well. From now on, we will definitely consult the biodynamics calendar before we plant. Thank you for sharing this information! Bob and Angie
Robyn, Thank you so much for offering this rich Biodynamic Soil! Maria P.
Hi Robyn ! a couple of weeks ago i picked up some of your FROG HOLLER HELPER Biodynamic Garden Soil and i meant to tell ya, that's some amazing stuff. we are mostly container gardening this year and i uppotted some plants into larger pots using your soil and the plants literally jumped up and got that happy plant glow ! speaking on behalf of my garden, i would like to thank you for the wonderful soil.i plan on getting some more soon ! Chris M.
It was a pleasure to meet you last Saturday . . . I now can tell you...I LOVE YOUR SOIL. I just about buried my face in it! Pamela
Your Dirt Rocks! Thank you so much for the wonderful dirt! M. and D. Lasson
I purchased 3 or 4 bags from you last year. I think the soil you sell is grand! Grew wonderful veggies with a modest application. Cannot wait to fill up my new beds with a heaping helping of it! Thank you. Also enjoy the quotes below. Right up my alley! J. Peterson
The reason you have no evidence of disease is simple. You have so much biological activity in your soil that it outcompetes the bad bacterium. It's the same principle for using manure tea or raw milk. This is why I'm so amazed that this area has yet to embrace high quality growing mediums, it is the key to successful organic farming. G. Kalogridis
I got your Frog Holler Helper garden soil years ago. I have never seen anything grow so fast! I put some seeds in the soil and I had to jump back--they grew so fast! That is why I am coming back for more. I don't even have a green thumb. It is all in your soil. Linda Freed
That stuff is the "CAVIAR OF COMPOST"! David Peskin
Hi Robyn, I spoke with you at the craft fair in Maggie Valley recently and I wanted you to know how good my garden is doing this year. I live half way up a mountain so it's not easy growing produce. You encouraged me last year to grow lettuce and I have successfully done that. You told me you put some extra things in your biodynamic soil this year. I don't remember what it was but please continue to do so . . . Thank you for all your hard work and conscientious efforts to help people like me. I salute you. . . . Happy gardening. P. Lopez
I use Frog Holler Helper biodynamic garden soil in my garden and I have grown a lot of tomatoes that weighed three pounds! M. Cammer
I wouldn't have a garden without the Frog Holler Helper soil. I had someone build me a raised garden and he filled it with clay and rocks, just native Carolina soil. I went and bought Frog Holler Helper and mixed it with the clay. I had some good plants the first year, but kept buying the soil each spring and having more and more success. Now, I use Frog Holler Helper and my compost and have a very productive garden each year. I have come to love gardening because Robyn has made it so easy. Lolita Roy
That rich black stuff made my tomato plants go wild. Initially the ground looked & felt lifeless, but after adding Frog Holler Helper I had a real garden plot. John Buckley
My experience with Frog Holler's biodynamic garden soil- My family and I moved to Waynesville last May. I started a square foot garden as fast as possible. My plants (Tomatoes, cukes, beans) struggled because I didn't have time to collect all the nutrient supplies I needed. I bought one bag of Frog Holler Helper and BINGO! Results. The plants shot up. I started getting about 25-30 beans per plant, eight cucumbers on a plant, and over 200 grape tomatoes on one plant! My plants grew very fast, about one half of an inch a day. This soil also made my plants tough. Not hard to deduct since my tomatoes, cukes and beans lasted through several cold nights in the teens. No question where I'm getting my biodynamic garden soil this year. THANK YOU FROG HOLLER ORGANIKS! Jacob Clifton, Age 13
Robyn! Love the updates! Very informative and helpful. Pruned my blueberries as soon as I got the last newsletter. Soil I got last fall has some beautiful garlic that I planted in mid-oct and some beautiful Broccoli from this spring. Wish I got a giant dump truck full of your great dirt! Ribbitt (frog for check you later) Lani
Your Frog holler Helper produced a wonderful, abundant and tasty garden last year! CeCe

SHE'S FABULOUSLY FEMININE AND FARMING!
By: Wendimere Reilly
While searching the Local Harvest website for interesting local and organic farms in North Carolina I came across . . . Frog Holler Organiks. . . Climbing down from the tractor was a strong, vibrant, confident woman. Robyn Cammer is a landscaper, farmer and the local biodynamic garden soil guru. It turns out that the farm is widely known for producing the most nutritious and sought after biodynamic garden soil in the state. A fact quickly verified as we kept running into people that knew Robyn and swore by the stuff.
I asked her what was in it and she quickly rattled off a dozen or so ingredients including trout, but at the time I happened to be more interested in watching her work the tractor wearing a sundress, wide-brimmed hat, no make-up and looking simply lovely. I thought to myself, what a truly inspirational role model.
So if you are ever in Waynesville, NC stop by the farm, pick-up fresh eggs, or some of their infamous Frog Holler Helper soil. Better yet, book a weekend getaway and rent The Gardener's House. Guests can make fresh salads from delicacies that you pick right from the greenhouse, relax in the gardens and enjoy the fresh mountain air.
Robyn, I am so excited with the Frog Holler Helper we got from you a couple weeks ago! I now have my own lettuce growing and it came up almost immediately with the biodynamic garden soil. Thanks! P. Crawford
After visiting Robyn's amazing farm and receiving a brief education from her about Frog Holler Helper soil, I ordered a truckload. Robyn promptly delivered her prized biodynamic garden soil and gave me a number of tips in working with the medium. I am ecstatic that my flowers and vegetables are thriving and secure in the knowledge that I have added value to the landscape. L. Dickinson
Hi Robyn; Just wanted to let you know your Frog Holler Helper is really great and I appreciate being on your email list. Thank you. T. Alexander
Your Frog Holler Helper has created the most fabulous garden for us!! Our garden is the marvel of our street and we share our produce with many!! Thanks so much!! We'll have to take pictures and email them to you. Our sunflowers are over 12' high! No exaggeration!! Athena and Avalon
My husband and I came to your farm to buy Frog Holler Helper soil earlier this spring. It was fantastic by the way - the tomatoes I planted in the soil were huge and delicious! Kristina
My antique roses and hydrangeas are popping in the Frog Holler Helper biodynamic soil I used -- from Frog Holler! I'm VERY happy with the results. I'll get some more this spring .. for sure. Thanks so much! D. Hicks
