Short on space for a garden? This is a terrific way to maximize the growing potential of small spaces. WSU Master Gardener Vicki Williams will present the details on what is needed for straw bale gardening. What is Straw Bale Gardening? We use straw bales not only as the container, but also as that growing media. The straw inside the bale decomposes, with a little starter help, and it provides nutrients for the plants that you will grow. And you can use the remains of the bales as organic mulch for your garden over the winter. If you're short on space or time, this may be the way for you to have a happy, productive garden this summer!
