Speaker in Spotlight: Karsten

"Straw Bale Gardens" by Karsten exploded onto the scene five years ago, & now his techniques are being embraced world-wide. Could this be an answer to world hunger & urban food security? ...YES, let Karsten show you how, why & where it is working now

Using "conditioned" bales of straw, people all over the world are now growing vegetable gardens. Some are trying gardening for the first time this way, while other "seasoned" gardeners may be using bales to continue gardening when physical limitations have forced them to cease traditional gardening. Some of the poorest urban populations in the world are growing vegetables themselves for the first time, at home, in bales. Many advantages come with the bales. No weeding, less bending, earlier planting and a longer growing season, with less need for pesticides. A Straw Bale Garden is very economical to set up and requires less water and far less labor to maintain than a traditional soil garden. Plant this garden on a roof, or in a parking lot, since no soil is required and the bales are portable taking up little space. For the urban poor who have little gardening knowledge, own no property and have no tools, the bales are a way to grow food themselves for the first time. They need almost zero resources to make this garden work. A home-made bale, home-made conditioning agent, and seed harvested from matured fruits, makes the start-up cost almost zero. The knowledge required is limited, and the results are spectacular, which encourages the spread of the idea quickly. Currently happening in Cambodia, Nepal, Korea, Philippines, Argentina, South Africa, and even in some of the most economically challenged neighborhoods in cities in Western Europe, and the USA and Canada. Hear about Karsten's efforts to teach his methods to the masses around the world and to help them learn to feed themselves and finally end their reliance upon third party food aid. Helping them to improve the nutrition of their diets, and in some cases providing them with additional income from selling their excess production. Karsten speaks to enthusiastic audiences around the world as a keynote speaker. It is his amazing story, humor, entrepreneurial spirit and passion for gardening that make him a sought-after speaker for gardening events, home and garden shows, healthy living events and more.
