Picture Sundays: Culver Billy

Culver City (where I grew up) has a demented recycling mascot, a trash eating goat. And Culver High has an equally strange mascot: I’m thinking Culver City should combine the two to create a faun that eats soda cans and cheers on the high school football team. Is this a thing? Does your city have […]

Black Friday Book Suggestions

While we don’t much approve of all the self-referential Black Friday hoopla each year, the fact is that it is difficult to get through this season without buying something for someone, and books make great presents, especially for do-it-yourselfer types. With that in mind, here’s a round-up of our favorite books of the year: Wild […]

Our hypocrisy revealed

(Well, one of our hypocrisies.) We make snarky comments  all the time about the new trend toward horizontal fencing in our neighborhood– what we call “flipper fences.” We’ve talked about flipper fences at least once on this blog, probably more, and anyone who hangs out with us has heard the term from us too many […]

Josey Baker on Bread: Whole, Wild, Wet, Slow and Bold

You can make bread or babies with Josey Baker’s advice. Earlier this month, the bread cult I co-founded, the Los Angeles Bread Bakers, hosted a class by author and enthusiastic bread nerd Josey Baker. Baker and his mentor Dave Miller (yes, they do have oddly appropriate surnames) have developed a style of baking that Josey […]

Thanks! I was interested in your comment regarding bringing 4H to city kids. I have been thinking about doing something similar to that where inner city kids could come to the farm as part of a summer program. They could be part of the planting, harvesting and selling of veggies (learning life skills) in addition to feeding and caring for the animals. I have a friend who works with kids in East L.A. as part of an after school program and we are trying to incorporate the concept into a package that works here in MA. Big Plans!...maybe too big. And yes, hippie attire is mandatory

Just purchased your book along with Scott Kellogg's "Toolbox for Sustainable City Living." As a resident of Baltimore City, they're right down my alley! Can't wait to read.
