POSTPONED DUE TO ILLNESS Straw Bale Gardening with Lulu Locks

This no-soil method for growing is fun, simple and rewarding and has the added bonus of making compost for your yard. It's ideal for all kinds of small spaces and for the busy urban farmer who may not have a lot of time to devote to regular garden maintenance.  This 90- minute workshop will cover preparation, construction, irrigation, maintenance & planting of your bale. Lulu will share photos, stories, and mistakes alike to help you to have a successful gardening season.

Best known for her career in vintage esthetics and her West Side businesses, Suite Tart & Providence Pinup, LuLu Locks is always trying to live her motto of "Be A Bombshell!" But what you might not know is that she also has a green thumb. 

 Lulu grew up on a working farm in Western Coventry, which formed a palate that was never happy with store-bought veggies. When she settled into a suburban neighborhood with little topsoil, she experimented with various styles of container gardening, and hit the jackpot with straw bale gardening
