Ellis is a semi-retired business manager, spouse, and grandpa. He has also instructed in a wide range of venues including industry, junior college, and university levels. Currently he chairs the board of directors for a $70 million not-for-profit education firm, and maintains his own modest business consulting LLC.
Ellis has also been a Certified Master Gardener through the University of Wisconsin-Extension in Eau Claire.
During the spring of 2015 Ellis and his wife, Mary, learned about Joel Karsten’s creative work with Straw Bale Gardening, and they set up their own 20-bale garden. Their main interest was blight-free, blossom rot-free tomatoes, and they planted thirteen different varieties – all of which were very successful. They also had good success with peppers, and cole crops.
Their 2016 gardening will include another Straw Bale Garden, and they are eager to share their learning with other gardeners.
