Legacy Event: Straw Bale Gardening
Friday, May 1st, 11:00 am

Grow a garden without WEEDING, without the “heavy lifting” and without getting down on your hands and knees. If you thought the only place to grow healthy vegetable crops was in black dirt, you must attend this presentation.

Learn to grow a bountiful garden without using herbicides or insecticides. Learn to plant a wide variety of vegetables, root crops, vine crops, and even beautiful flowers, directly into your “conditioned” straw bales. Any backyard, concrete patio, rooftop or driveway, can become a productive garden space.

Learn this revolutionary and easy NEW gardening method to create a beautiful and productive garden, without lifting a shovel and without using soil. This program, sponsored by Arrowhead Library System, was funded in part or in whole with money from Minnesota’s Arts and Cultural Heritage Fund.
