Imagine a world where doctors prescribed "one dose of a garden" for a pre-diabetes patient. They get a $100 voucher and pick their gardening supplies at the local garden center. Six bales, fertilizer, 18 plants/seedpacks a couple of cattle panels, and a sheet of instructions. Now they get excersize, eat better, even accomplish something great doing a new hobby. They get healthier without even realizing what happened, no diets or programs, it is simply a life changing prescription! Talk about preventative medicine! I call this UPSTREAM healthcare, and it is the answer to so many of the huge problems our country faces with diseases related to what food people are eating. Obesity, diabetes, heart disease, cancer, and even depression, can all be directly traced to the diet, and treating these diseases is draining our countries resources fast. Lets change that, encourage your friends to grow a garden...a straw bale garden is a great way to start.

Great article in the Quad Cities newspaper. It is amazing how simple this method can be and how perfect it is for Seniors. Straw Bale Gardening allows folks to continue gardening ten or twenty years longer than would be possible in a normal soil garden, which requires much more physical work.

I don't recall writing for this article, nor being interviewed, but it must have happened.  I just stumbled across this article when another website i was looking at offered a link to it.  I am always amazed at how popular the STRAW BALE GARDENS® mehtod has become.

A great blog about the evolution of one family's love for Straw Bale Gardening and each other! This one is a tear jerker, so grab a tissue. I share it because it truly shows the value of gardening as a family, and how this method can benefit those without the time and physical ability to takle a traditional soil garden.

Nancy Mace, "blogger extraordinaire" writes all about her experiences with Straw Bale Gardening in bermuda hay bales on her Oklahoma Century Farm. I love her enthusiasm, and how she has become an evangelist for the method in Oklahoma. A place where the growing isn't normally so easy!

I wrote this for fix.com but the illustrations and graphics they did are amazing. It may be the most complete and easy to understand summary of the Straw Bale Gardens method ever!
