When I was young, I didn’t think it odd at all that my Mom knew where to look for spring asparagus and morel mushrooms in the woods around her hometown in southern Indiana.I thought that everyone knew where to find Yerba Buena growing in the redwood groves of the Oakland hills.Summer trips to the southern end of the San Francisco Bay were to buy tomatoes, corn, strawberries, cherries, and pears (oh the sweet pears!) in what is now  Fremont and Silicon Valley.
Our family located in Castro Valley for a couple of years when my parents moved part and parcel to their newly adopted state of California.Years passed, my family moved to Oakland, life happened, yet my mother continued my lessons in “putting up” food, foraging, keeping chickens, and home keeping as Urbanites in the city.Fast forward and I find myself back in Castro Valley, the keeper of knowledge for our family recipes and gardening techniques and smack dab in the middle of the new, yet ancient, craft of Urban Farming.
