I never would have guessed that there would be an urban farm a mile from MacArthur BART station. Located off Martin Luther King Jr. Way near the freeway lies Ghost Town Farm. This Sunday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., the farm is holding a free, self-guided open house. Owner Novella Carpenter, who has written a book about urban farming, will walk the grounds to meet visitors and answer questions. The farm includes a garden and has had animals such as goats, rabbits and chickens.
