Novella Carpenter video

Didn’t get to meet Novella Carpenter, author of Farm City: The Education of an Urban Farmer, at Slow Food Seacoast’s 50-Mile Thanksgiving last November? This 13-minute video from is a wonderful introduction to her unique approach to urban farming in West Oakland, California—from interplanting Swiss chard in raised beds in an abandoned lot to milking goats on her porch and slaughtering rabbits in the backyard.
