Farm City

The Education of an Urban Farmer

Overview

From the publisher

If you’ve ever considered leaving it all behind to become a farmer outside the city limits, or looked at the abandoned lot next door with a gleam in your eye, consider Farm City as both a cautionary tale and a full-throated call to action. Carpenter’s memoir, about trying to maintain a farm in the back yard of her very urban home in Oakland, California, is unforgettably charming, full of hilarious moments, fascinating farmers’ tips, and a great deal of heart. It is also a moving meditation on urban life versus the natural world, and what we have given up to live the way we do.
