Farm City

Today was mostly about the Reads program and Novella Carpenter's book Farm City. As a discussion group leader Southern Man prepared some additional handouts covering topics of interest to him (right to farm, food law, front-yard gardens, and back-yard chickens) and nabbed another professor who has a few (illegal) back-yard chickens to help him out. There were about fifteen freshmen in the group and we had a good time discussing the book and various issues about food.

The afternoon was spent working on syllabi, then that evening was Ms. Carpenter's presentation. If you ever have a chance to hear her speak, don't pass it up - her descriptions of her various adventures in Oakland was witty and clever and downright hilarious.

Novella Carpenter and Southern Man.

Now Southern Man is even more excited about getting settled out on The Land so that he can put some of his own hobby farm dreams into reality. Novella's blog is now on the blogroll and Southern Man has ordered her new book, The Essential Urban Farmer.

Tomorrow should be a half-day at work, mostly a mid-morning faculty meeting. Once Monday's syllabi and handouts are printed and stacked Southern Man will embark upon his weekend!

Did you color your hair too? Thought it was darker in some earlier posted entries.

Right. I'm coloring my hair to be more grey. Forty nine shades to go!

Doesn't look grey to me....a light brown. Besides, there is nothing wrong with grey/silver.
