About this week's guest, Joel Karsten

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 24 bale garden on his small residential lot in Roseville, Minnesota.  He is also a fan of tulips, dahlias, roses, hostas and lilies, and is always on the lookout for new introductions.

Teaching Community Education became an interest of Joel's when people began to inquire about how he grew vegetables in bales of straw.  These classes began his adventures in traveling the world teaching the Straw Bale Gardening Method that he pioneered so many years ago.  Joel has a busy speaking schedule throughout the year, and his books have become the best-selling books in the gardening category world-wide since their publication.  As Joel attests, "the books are simply tools essential to learning the techniques and protocols that took me over 20 years to perfect."  Readers agree, the books are filled with information that a new Straw Bale Gardener really can't do without. Autographed copies of any of his books can be purchased HERE on this website.

Karsten is available as a Keynote speaker for events around the country. He often speaks at Home and Garden Shows, Healthy Living, Corporate Wellness, Gardening Expos, or other events where "Gardeners" are prominently in attendance.  Karsten also provides private LIVE Webinar Style appearances for smaller events for garden clubs or educational classes, without a travel budget for speakers. Contact Joel directly with any inquiry you might have, and if he can't help you, he can probably refer you to one of his many Certified Straw Bale Gardening Instructors around the world.

About this week's guest, Joel Salatin

Joel F. Salatin is an American farmer, lecturer, and author whose books include Folks, This Ain't Normal; You Can Farm; and Salad Bar Beef.

Salatin raises livestock using holistic management methods of animal husbandry on his Polyface Farm in Swoope, Virginia, in the Shenandoah Valley. Meat from the farm is sold by direct marketing to consumers and restaurants

In high school, Salatin began his own business selling rabbits, eggs, butter and chicken from his family farm at the Staunton Curb Market. He then attended Bob Jones University where he majored in English and was a student leader. He graduated in 1979. Salatin married his childhood sweetheart in 1980 and became a feature writer at the Staunton, Virginia newspaper, The News Leader, where he had worked earlier typing obituaries and police reports.

Tired of "having his stories spiked," he decided to try farming full-time after first getting involved in a walnut-buying station run by two high school boys. Salatin's grandfather had been an avid gardener and beekeeper and a follower of J. I. Rodale, the founder of regenerative organic horticulture. Salatin's father worked as an accountant and his mother taught high school physical education. Salatin's parents had bought the land that became Polyface in 1961 after losing a farm in Venezuela to political turmoil. They had raised cattle using organic methods, but could not make a living at farming alone.

Salatin, a self-described "Christian libertarian environmentalist capitalist lunatic farmer" produces meat he describes as "beyond organic", which are raised using what the farm describes as environmentally responsible, ecologically beneficial, sustainable agriculture. Jo Robinson, the author of Pasture Perfect: The Far-Reaching Benefits of Choosing Meat, Eggs and Dairy Products From Grass-Fed Animals (2004) said of Salatin, "He's not going back to the old model. There's nothing in county extension or old-fashioned ag science that really informs him. He is just looking totally afresh at how to maximize production in an integrated system on a holistic farm. He's just totally innovative."

Salatin considers his farming a ministry, and he condemns the negative impact on his livelihood and lifestyle of what he considers an increasingly regulatory approach taken by the agencies of the United States government toward farming. Salatin now spends a hundred days a year lecturing at colleges and to environmental groups.
