Interested in growing vegetables but lacking the proper garden space or struggling with mobility? Straw bale gardening might be for you!
In this 90-minute class, local gardener Linda Rudolph will teach students how to use straw bales as a gardening option to grow vegetables with no ground preparation and limited weeding, easier access and minimal space. Perfectly timed for jumpstarting the learning process before spring planting, this class will give you the information you need to turn your dreams about next year’s home-grown vegetables into reality!
Class will finish right in time for lunch, so sign up a few friends, learn something new and share a delicious meal at the Farmview Café following your workshop.
Space is limited in this class, so register early to reserve your seat!

Linda has always been a gardener, tucking in peas or cabbage into her landscape. She has recently bought some acreage and can have a real garden, but during a 12-year period, she lived in a home that had terrible vegetable gardening options. Thus, she studied, learned and started her own straw bale garden. Linda has had a great garden every spring since 1995 and has been a member of Conyers Garden Club for the past several years. She loves sharing all she’s learned about making straw bale gardening work and is excited to help others find ways to grow their own vegetables in straw bales even if they don’t have a perfect set up for an in-ground garden.
