Join us for a book discussion of "Farm City: The Education of an Urban Farmer" by Novella Carpenter. New members always welcome!  Please check with library staff for location or Zoom link.

Synopsis: "When Novella Carpentercaptivated by the idea of backyard self-sufficiency as the daughter of two back-to-the-earth hippiesmoves to a ramshackle house in inner-city Oakland and discovers a weed-choked, garbage-strewn abandoned lot next door, she closes her eyes and pictures heirloom tomatoes, a beehive, and a chicken coop.

What starts out as a few egg-laying chickens leads to turkeys, geese, and ducks. And not long after, along came two 300-pound pigs. And no, these charming and eccentric animals aren’t pets. Novella is raising these animals for dinner.

An unforgettably charming memoir, full of hilarious moments, fascinating farmer’s tips, and a great deal of heart, Farm City offers a beautiful mediation on what we give up to live the way we do today." --
