We are now hearing from multiple people that Akiko Minami and Micah Posner are saying some things about our situation as co-owners that are incorrect. We thought we’d clarify things.
What we’re hearing that Akiko and Micah are saying:
“We don’t understand why they object to our wanting to build a little unit. We just want what they have.”
“Our little unit isn’t going to impact Fairytale Farm at all. We care about Fairytale Farm, and we wouldn’t do anything to hurt it.”
“This misunderstanding seems so big because we all care about each other so much. We’re so sad this is happening. We even raised our kids together.”
Although many people understand our objections and why we’re so upset about feeling defrauded, we thought we’d try to provide a simple explanation, in hopes that maybe someone can explain to Akiko and Micah and provide them some much-needed clue.
Fairytale Farm had the privilege of hosting world renowned chef and artist Jim Denevan who cooked up an organic, locally-sourced, backyard fundraiser feast for the Micah Posner for City Council campaign. We were so successful, along with all of the volunteer helpers throughout the campaign, that Micah won!
The table was so long, we had to keep our gates open, so everyone could see the festivities from the street.
Jim and Micah’s friendship goes way back to when Jim was the founder of People Power, the Santa Cruz transportation advocacy group. Since then, Jim has created the internationally known Outstanding in the Field farm-to-table dinners, as well as his own acclaimed art. Here Jim and Micah speak about their relationship, and what inspired Micah to run for city council.
It was a delicious and beautiful dinner, and we were proud to provide the garden space for it. Fairytale Farm is a part of Micah’s backyard, so we are pleased to have a city councilmember as one of our garden gnomes!
