Meeting: Straw bale gardening is a type of container gardening without soil. The straw bales are the containers and the growing medium. Getting the straw bales conditioned is an essential part of the process. If you would like to learn more about straw bale gardening, come see what IOGA members Darlene and Gary are doing. This is their second year of straw bale gardening. They have had some exciting results. Limited parking — car pool. Also, bring some chairs just in case.
Pitch-in lunch: Bring a favorite dish filled with food (“home-made” and/or “organic” appreciated) to share and your plate, fork, and drink.
