Compost & Straw Bale Gardening: May's edition of Northern Gardening

Want to learn more about composting?
Take a listen to this month's edition of Northern Gardening – to learn about composting in your home garden as well as using composting as a means of gardening with straw bales. 
Hosts Diane Booth and Joan Farnam welcomed Joel Karsten to the program, author of ‘Straw Bale Gardens’, ‘Straw Bale Gardens Complete’  and ‘Straw Bale Solutions’. Joel has a B.S. degree in horticulture, ran his own landscape design and installation company in the Minneapolis / St. Paul area, and is an avid vegetable gardener who also loves tulips, dahlias, roses, hostas and lilies. Learn more about Joel’s latest six-bale greenhouse composting project and how that might work for you in your back yard!
WTIP’s Northern Gardening airs the second Thursday of the month, from 7 to 8 p.m. – and is rebroadcast the following Saturday from 6 to 7 a.m. And all previously aired Northern Gardening programs are archived on our website.
