Product Details


"Easily the funniest, weirdest, most perversely provocative gardening book I’ve ever read. I couldn’t put it down… The writing soars." —The New York Times Book Review

"Captivating… By turns edgy, moving, and hilarious, Farm City marks the debut of a striking new voice in American writing." –Michael Pollan, author of The Omnivore’s Dilemma and Food Rules

"Fresh, fearless, and jagged around the edges, Ms. Carpenter’s book… puts me in mind of Julie Powell’s Julie & Julia and Elizabeth Gilbert’s Eat, Pray, Love." —The New York Times

"Carpenter, with [her] humor and step-by-step clarity, make[s] it seem utterly possible to grow the kind of food you want to eat, wherever you live." —Los Angeles Times
