the right to garden


In many parts of the country edible plants are considered “unsightly” and officials are having them removed, as in Tulsa, OK, or are bullying homeowners, as in this site below.

Our garden just happens to be in the front yard. There are no ordinances against doing so, but we have been repeatedly told to remove our garden from the front yard, told to seed and straw our front yard, threatened with fines, and harassed for the last three months without justification. When we attempted to file charges for harassment at the Ferguson Police Department, we were laughed at and told to leave. It was said by the public relations officer that “this is a civil issue, not criminal”.

  1. I posted the Tulsa story on Late Bloomer Show Facebook page today. Thanks for posting this insane, but utterly truthful video, which I shared. Also shared the Missouri About Story.
