By now, even the most casual gardeners have heard of straw bale gardening, the pioneering method to gardening introduced by Joel Karsten. Since his first book, Straw Bale Gardens, was published in 2013, this method of growing vegetables has exploded in popularity and is now being practised across the world.
By coming along on this guided tour of the Straw Bale Planet, you are sure to find many situations that match yours, and that you can learn from when planning and starting your very own SBG.
Straw Bale Planet doesn't just teach from example, it also traces the evolution of the SBG movement from its inception on a small tree farm in Minnesota. This is more than just a home gardening phenomenon; it's an institution that is being employed to combat world hunger in countries like Cambodia, Argentina, and Costa Rica.
This guidebook is filled with practical information for home gardeners who want to adopt the method. You'll see the countless iterations of the method in a huge variety of climates and situations, giving you the best road map to adapting the method to make their own gardens even more successful.
