Farm City

Novella Carpenter is my hero. Fearless Urban Farmer, she unhesitatingly enters empty lots and begins to transform them into urban oases. Her writing is educational, humourous, and touching. Armed with just a few books to guide her, and her partner Bill for encouragement, her forays into heritage watermelon growing, meat-bird raising and apiary inspire me to experiment with my own yard space. She doesn't even own hers!That is what makes her dedication to her craft all the more inspiring - she never knows when it will all be taken out by a backhoe, but she does it all the same because it's her passion.
