As a horticulturist, I enjoyed this book. I question whether her concept of urban farming will work in the Twin Cities as some cities ban farm animals. She does take the stand that animals are raised for food and are not pets. I respect that as a former farm kid. I’ve participated in butchering a number of animals for the table. It’s a good read.

You do not have to live in the country to be a farmer. Novella Carpenter recounts her trials and successes as an urban squatter farmer in Oakland, California. From growing vegetables to raising turkeys, rabbits, and pigs, this urban farmer creates a paradise of green within the rough inner city. A memoir of self-growth and renewal, Novella shows that anyone with a passion for sustainability and help from their community can become a successful farmer.
