Have been reading about this idea of using straw bales to grow plants on.
This article on the telegraph describes the process

I’ve spotted somewhere selling straw near me but need to convince someone with a trailer to go and get me some!

This article in the guardian tells how this place is using straw bales for a urinal!

There’s some great photos of straw being used as mulch on this forum
‘Extreme mulching’ comes from Ruth Stout’s work – Ruth Stout books at Amazon
