Novella Carpenter has been urban farming since 1998. She started in Seattle with chickens, bees, and vegetables; when she moved to the East Bay in 2003 with her boyfriend Billy, they took on turkeys, rabbits, ducks, and pigs. Their adventures in urban farming are detailed in her first book, Farm City: the Education of an Urban Farmer (Penguin, 2009). She studied with Michael Pollan at Berkeley's Graduate School of Journalism and started blogging while taking classes there in 2006.
