Help with Grants

My husband and I bought a small farm, 11.48 acres and would like to find a few grants that would help us with our start up for planting cut flowers/lavender, produce garden and to host 2 or 3 retired race horses. We are also wanting to use the farmhouse as a Bed & Breakfast/Retreat for quilters, scrap bookers, golfers, etc in a few years. Also create an Event Facility for Weddings, Parties, Festival and Reunions. We want to be an Agritourism farm and labeled Kentucky Proud. We received a Dump Clean Up Grant because this property was in desire need of cleaning. Any help would be great. I am working with KCARD on my business plan and I have completed a Water Quality Plan.

Frost bitten Philodendron

I have a philodendron tree that stays outside during the summer months and is brought inside during fall/winter months. This year we were out of town when the temps dropped and the plants are damaged from the cold weather. The plants are inside the home now, but are obviously not doing well. Some of the leaves are a yellow/green color with brown areas on them. What can I do to save them? Should I buy a grown light? Prune? Repot? Fertilize? Thanks in advance for answering my question.

Could someone please tell me what kind of spider this is?

I was laying in bed and felt something crawling on my neck. I reached up and threw this spider across the room. It's now dead but I was wondering if we should be concerned.
