Free Straw Bale Gardening Seminar

straw-bale-gardenTuesday, March 17, 6pm

Please join Otten Bros. as we feature the hottest trend in gardening for those who want to ‘grow your own’, Straw Bale Gardens!

Author Joel Karsten will be speaking on his non-traditional method of gardening using straw bales.  This unique style of gardening is great for the novice and the expert gardener. Gardening with straw bales allows you to have a garden without the labor involved in creating a traditional garden; including no soil prep and no weeding!  You can even grow a garden on asphalt or concrete using this method.  Joel will also be signing his book after his seminar.
