Joel Karsten | Straw Bale Gardens (Online)
Time & Location
About the Event
Straw Bale Solutions – A mere ten years ago, almost no one had heard of growing vegetables in straw bales. Today, Joel Karsten’s STRAW BALE GARDENS® technique has been adopted by gardeners all over the planet, and is arguably the fastest growing new method being used by vegetable gardeners since man started cultivating crops 10,000 years ago. The question is WHY? Karsten will explain the advantages of his method and why it has become popular so quickly. While many gardeners here in our country are constantly looking for a better, easier, faster and more economical way to grow fruits, vegetables and flowers, in many less fortunate countries around the world, growing food is essential to survival, not simply a hobby. In his most recent book Joel profiles gardeners from around the USA and five other continents, who have implemented a Straw Bale Garden.
JOEL KARSTEN, a farm boy who grew up tending a soil garden like other gardeners have for centuries, shook up the gardening world with his first book describing his breakthrough Straw Bale Gardening concept. The New York Times called Straw Bale Gardening “a revolutionary gardening method” and his ideas have been enthusiastically embraced globally, making his books best-sellers in many languages.
