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.

Bergeron and Lacinski's new book Serious Straw Bale is the first to look carefully at the specific design considerations critical to success with a straw bale building in more extreme climates-where seasonal changes in temperature, precipitation, and humidity create special stresses that builders must understand and address. The authors draw upon years of experience with natural materials and experimental techniques, and present a compelling rationale for building with straw-one of nature's most resilient, available, and affordable byproducts.
