HYBRID BOOK CLUB: The Education Of An Urban Farmer
We’ve put a fun and delicious twist on a book club by combining it with a cooking class/takeout dinner. Members meet virtually to discuss the book selection and we demonstrate how to make a dish based on the book’s theme. Book discussion is led by Words Worth Books, and cooking instruction provided by Donna-Marie Pye from Relish Cooking Studio.
APRIL: The Education Of An Urban Farmer
ABOUT: When Novella Carpenter—captivated by the idea of backyard self-sufficiency as the daughter of two back-to-the-earth hippies—moves 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. Book Is Not Included in the cost of the registration. If you wish to order a copy of the book from Words Worth Books, CLICK HERE
