LONG LAKE, Minn. - Straw Bale Gardening is one of the hottest vegetable gardening trend in the country. Joel Karstan from the Twin Cities invented the technique three years ago and last year his book "Straw Bale Gardens" was the top selling garden books in the world.

Saturday Otten Bros. Garden Center in Long Lake will hold Straw Bale Gardens Education Day at the State Fair grounds from 9 a.m. - 2 p.m. There will be presentations every hour from Joel Karstan. All supplies available on site, bales for pickup or delivery. If you are a seasoned gardener, you'll discover how this method saves time and is much easier, less bending and no weeding!

For more info check out Joel's website strawbalegardens.com, or call Otten Bros. at 952-473-5425.
