This is the true story of an urban farm started in New Orleans, Louisiana, on land abandoned after hurricane Katrina, as told by its resident goat to the author. There are lots of practical details and good ideas for farms both in cities and in the country, so read on.

Oh sure everyone wants to pet and coo over an adorable baby goat, but an old bearded goat, they’ll look at for a moment and then move on. Well, one good thing about being old is having learned how to take the bad with the good. And when nobody thinks much of you it sure is easy to observe what is going on. And that is just what I have been doing from my pen in the back corner of Paradigm Gardens for the last four years.
