Well, that was the old breed of farmer.<br>Novella Carpenter is one of the new breed, and she's raising her rabbits, chickens, and goats right in the middle of Oakland. She blogs about it at&nbsp;Ghost Town Farm, and she just published a book: "Farm City: The Education of an Urban Farmer." KALW's Ben Trefny sat down with Novella Carpenter to ask her how exactly it all works.</p> Mon, 19 Nov 2012 20:54:00 +0000 Ben Trefny 8115 at http://kalw.org Urban Farmer Novella Carpenter
