Joel KarstenIn the second hour, JD is joined by author and horticulture expert, Joel Karsten for a discussion about possibly the greatest gardening technique in existence today, Straw Bale Gardening! Joel walks us through all of the benefits of straw bale gardening, take us thorough the process step by step and takes listener calls to answer your gardening questions! The time is now to reclaim your ability to grow food and to do it all without having to weed your garden!

Joel Karsten is a graduate from the University of Minnesota and received a Bachelor of Science degree in Horticulture Science. He worked in the “Green” industry after graduation, running his own landscape design and Installation company in the Minneapolis/St.Paul metro area. He is still an avid vegetable gardener, trying new varieties of anything he can fit into his 20 bale garden on his limited residential lot in Roseville. He is also a fan of tulips, dhalias, roses, hostas and day lillies, and is always on the lookout for new introductions.

Changing careers is something many people do several times in a lifetime; Joel made a change in the 90s and began a small manufacturing and distribution company. Adventure Products, his current company, sells products in the toy, gift, hobby and novelty industry to retail stores world-wide.
