You Could Be A Farmer In Those Clothes

173 Farm City, City Farm: Tales in Urban Farming from Farmer-Author Novella Carpenter and Farmer Rich Pederson

Join Southside Community Land Trust and Slow Food RI for a evening of stories — trials, tribulations, and triumphs — from two talented urban farmers; Novella Carpenter, author of Farm City: the Education of an Urban Farmer, and Rich Pederson, Southside Community Land Trust’s City Farm Farm Manager.

Novella and Rich will take turns sharing their urban agriculture experiences with us. Their unique perspectives have been influenced by each of their environments; Novella’s in Oakland, California, and Rich’s here in Providence. They’ll follow their storytelling with an audience question and answer period, which is sure to be entertaining and informative — and quite likely very funny as well.

A $10 donation ($5 for college students) is requested. Funds will support programs at Southside Community Land Trust and Slow Food RI.

Thursday, 7pm, First Unitarian Church, 1 Benevolent Street
