Entertaining, informative, innovative and inspiring are just four words that describe Joel's presentations. His ideas have spread around the world encouraging backyard gardeners to reinvent the way they grow vegetables. Straw Bale Gardening works!

Audiences are amazed by Joel's ideas and innovative methods. He passionately describes how gardening can be so much easier than most people think. His passion is to change the way people think about growing food at home to position this hobby as life changing "upstream healthcare!" Transitioning to a new healthier lifestyle, any new or old gardener and their parents, children or grandchildren can adopt this simple and fun way to grow fresh vegetables. Embracing a gardener lifestyle always leads to fewer health problems in their future. The foundation of Joel's teachings is his innovative Straw Bale Gardens method, adopted by millions around the world, and proven to be easier and less expensive than any other gardening technique ever discovered. Joel's work in many third-world countries has enabled tens of thousands of the poorest and forgotten populations on earth to grow their own food for the first time ever. While they own no land or tools, and have limited access to water, fertilizer or money, these people can still have bountiful gardens. By adopting the Straw Bale Gardens method they begin harvesting within just 60-90 days of learning the basic techniques, with ZERO investment. Joel's social media reach is extraordinary, and he is willing to use it to help sell tickets to any event where he does a Keynote address. His innovative use of social media and his understanding of promotion and public relations will help any event organizer drive registration and attendance at their event. Let Joel inspire your audience with his story of "overnight" success after just 30 years of developing and teaching his innovative gardening ideas. Hear how he went from a small dairy farm in Minnesota to a best selling author with a full page book review in the New York Times. Learn why his revolutionary ideas have been adopted by millions who have decided, "I'll never go back to planting a garden in the soil ever again!" Joel is changing the way non-gardeners think about trying to grow food at home, and helping traditional gardeners to innovate part of their garden to adopt his ideas. He is changing the gardening world one audience at a time. If your event is looking for a fresh, innovative, entertaining speaker, please reach out directly to Joel to schedule your event.
