Our June 19th meeting featuring Connie Rosenthal, the Straw Bale Ambassador, was most informative and a lot of fun! Connie’s sense of humor was refreshing as she explained why she strongly endorses straw bale gardening. Our speaker encouraged members to check out books by Joel Karsten for more information on the process. Connie is an amateur gardener living in Jasper, Georgia and has been implementing the techniques of Straw Bale Gardening by Joel Karste. She has been overrun with vegetables and is expanding her garden haul to local restaurants and Farmers’ Markets.
