Joel Karsten pioneered the Straw Bale Gardens method almost 30 years ago, and has written five best selling books on the topic. He was featured in a major newspapers, network news and magazines not only in the US but around the world.
His books have been translated into more than twenty languages and the technique has been adopted by Gardner’s and populations around the world. Some of which have struggled to grow food due to climate or local soil conditions previously, until introduced to the SBG method.
Helping to solve world hunger, and helping to simply allow people everywhere to plant vegetables in their own backyard and get all of the benefits with almost none of the work involved in a traditional soil garden.

Reuploading now, DANG IT I hate mistakes like that. I guess the silver lining is those that got it before it was changed got to hear my response to being offered a comped one.
This straw bale garden looks really cool. Amazing at what level ingenuity surfaces. I think Rex Stout’s older sister would have liked it.
This is EXACTLY what I’ve been looking for! I’ve always struggled with Tomatoes because of the blight in my soil. I just ordered the kit with my MSB discount and am absolutely psyched to grow tomatoes again. Thanks Jack!!!
I’m up in Minnesota, same as Joel. I’ve actually met him a couple years ago while we was hustling his system in a local county library (he is still making the rounds big and small)!
The system works GREAT and we have had success with it.
Pumpkins loved it especially… so did the pole beans.
25% discount is another huge Jack win and helps pay for the membership…. LOVE IT
I just started inoculation of 6 bales in the aviary last evening. Video due out soon.
