I love this way of gardening! I am teaching veterans and their families how easy it is to do! THANK YOU to Joel for this book! It is filled with useful information, one of the best books available on straw bale gardening!
To say that Joel is an enthusiastic evangelist for SBG is an understatement. Hearing him on a radio call-in program inspired me, reading his books taught me, and meeting him encouraged me to become a straw bale gardening instructor so I can share my own enthusiasm: http://strawbalemarket.com/instructors/listings/joni-graves/
Joel is a straw bale gardening expert. He knows the topic inside and out and is a great speaker.
