Joel Karsten - Straw Bale Gardening

Want to get rid of the back aches, the sore knees and rough hands involved with gardening? Now you can - with straw bales instead of soil!

No, this isn't a hoax. It's a revolutionized way to garden that Worthington native Joel Karsten has come up with, called Straw Bale Gardening. By utilizing the natural fermentation process of decomposition, Karsten has found a new way to garden without soil, without the aches, but with all the benefits.

Want to find out more? Tune in this Thursday with ag broadcaster Sonja Langseth as she "gets the dirt" on this new way to garden!
