Backyard Roots

Lessons on Living Local From 35 Urban Farmers
Event detail
 

Come hear from Lori Eanes and meet some special guest animals!

Backyard Roots is a unique project by California-based photographer Lori Eanes that evocatively and intimately explores the lives of 35 urban farmers in Northern California, Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia.

The burgeoning range of people now turning their urban backyards into homesteads is wide and varied, from families with young children, to immigrants recapturing their original culture, to idealistic twenty-somethings seeking community. Many of these farmers have a special lesson or inspiration to share with those who aspire to, or simply appreciate, the urban farm lifestyle.

Book sales and signing follow.

This is a Green Stacks event.
