Four Seasons Garden Club open house April 11

Four Seasons Garden Club invites the community to join them at its annual Open House, Monday, April 11.

The event will be held at the Minnco Community Room, 236 2nd Ave SW, Cambridge at 7 p.m.

Joel Karsten will present “Straw Bale Gardening.” You will  learn how to grow flowers and vegetables without using herbicides, insecticides or fungicides. Using “conditioned” straw bales, you can garden without adding soil, weeding, bending over or lifting a shovel.

Karsten holds a BS from the University of Minnesota in Horticulture Science, is a MNLA Certified Nursery Professional and grew up on a tree nursery and crop farm. However, he says his real gardening knowledge has come from 35 years of being in the garden.

There is no charge for this presentation. Books may be available for purchase. Space is limited, so arrive early.
