A FARM?! In Oakland?! Ok I HAVE to read this!

Laura Sue

Hi Maia, are you around/near San Francisco? I am visiting next week and am about a continent's width out of my element. I want to go to Carolina Homespun. What else???

That looks like a great one, must pick it up. I am constantly reading about people suppling local farmers markets with organic produce from their own tiny backyard and am inspired. And also people who have found large unused land owned by people in other countries and have farm squatted on it and grown produce as well. Those are good ones too!


Maia, hi, this is Katherine -- I met you in SLC a few weeks back. I'd intended to swing by your booth at Black Sheep, but didn't end up doing so. Rather, I looked at your booth, but you weren't there -- I guess it was your business partner instead. Anyway, hi. And I'm choosing this post for a comment because you might be interested in the book The Urban Homestead. It's more how-to than it sounds like this one is, but maybe you'd like it, too.
