Instead of highly fertile soils ready for your plants, all you find is a stony surface full of glass shards and concrete bits. The best you could do with this is planting some grass and hopping it would work well. But this is not what you probably have in your mind. You want an elaborate garden that would let you plant 'real' plants. And straw bale gardening sounds like a great solution.

By now, even the most casual gardeners have heard of straw bale gardening, the pioneering method to gardening introduced by Joel Karsten. Since his first book, Straw Bale Gardens, was published in 2013, this method of growing vegetables has exploded in popularity and is now being practiced across the world.For as many folks that have taken to growing veggies in straw, you will find that each garden is somewhat different, and may solve a different gardening problem. By coming along on this guided tour of the Straw Bale Planet, you are sure to find many situations that match yours and that you can learn from when planning and starting your very own SBG. In addition to teaching by example, this latest book from Karsten also tells a story you are sure to enjoy. Straw Bale Planet traces the evolution of the SBG movement from its inception on a small tree farm in Minnesota to today. This is more than just a home gardening phenomenon; it's an institution that is being employed to combat world hunger in countries such as Cambodia, Argentina and Costa Rica. In Cambodia, a South Korean-lead program (with the cooperation of several NGOs) is creating thousands of straw bale gardens using Karsten's proprietary method.Straw Bale Planet uses the details of the SBG discovery process to provide practical information to home gardeners who want to adopt the method. While explaining the countless iterations of the method in such a wide variety of climates and situations, gardeners can learn how to practice and adapt the method to make their own gardens even more successful.
