Joel started teaching “Straw Bale Gardening” at a community education class in the spring of 2008. Since then, he’s become a popular speaker,  teaching about this new gardening method that he pioneered in classrooms, Home and Garden Shows, conventions and seminars all around the world. If you live somewhere that makes it impossible to get to one of Joel’s seminars, buy one of his books! You’ll learn exactly how to succeed at growing your own vegetables, herbs and flowers using this method.

We’ve also got LOTS of extra resources on our new website: You’ll find more than 85 videos with great tips about growing your own vegetables, a Community Forum where you can share photos and get answers to your questions from Joel, a Bale-Prep Email series to make the conditioning process even easier for you, and invitations to online events with other Straw Bale Gardeners from around the world.
