Farm City: The Education of an Urban Farmer by Novella Carpenter
Novella writes about her experiences farming in a rough section of Oakland with wit,humor and poignancy. I appreciate not only her sense of humor, but also her determined spirit. There’s useful info and inspiration in here ,too. In her urban setting, she manages to raise livestock, grow vegetables, keep bees and even forages for wilds.

I blogged on my personal blog about this book.Twice, I liked it so much.
