With our favorite urban farm bursting at the seams with a beautiful bounty, the Ghost Town Farm Stand has been revived!
In conjunction with Oakland’s First Friday / Art Murmur festivities just blocks away, writer / neighbor Novella Carpenter has been opening up her one-woman urban farm operation, Ghost Town Farm, to visitors. (Past posts about the farm can be seen here and here.) The first go around featured freshly harvested veggies, t-shirts, Novella’s books, as well as a dramatic honey extraction demonstration. Perhaps the most amazing part of the demo was witnessing the bees that got stuck in the honey resurrect after our local bee-expert Emma carefully fished them out of each jar. Nectar of the gods!
Some photos documenting this season’s first farm stand are below.
