Ghost Town Farm was an urban farm created by Novella Carpenter, author of Farm City: The Education of an Urban Farmer, which is a memoir of Carpenter's establishment of a farm in West Oakland in the Ghost Town or Hoover/Foster neighborhood at 28th and MLK. Carpenter keeps a blog at Ghost Town Farm.

Carpenter was evicted c.2018, and the garden is now tended by a different group of urban farmers. 1
