Oak Park Hates Veggies

I am sure that most of you have seen this on the news already but I am really watching this lady’s ordeal to see what happens to her. This woman built vegetable gardens in her front yard and the city is taking her to court for it. I have seen the pictures of her yard and it is very well maintained and not at all offensive. She is going to trial and if convicted she can be sentenced to 93 days in jail and would have to take her vegetable garden down. If you want to follow her story and help her fight to keep her garden you can follow her blog by going here.

  1. You know, its her right to have a garden. There are no homeowner associations in this story. I thought the garden was very nice. I hope she gets a jury trial and the jury finds for her. I read about this on The Blaze. Thank you, Grace for bringing it to others attention.

  2. Yes, I’ve seen the various updates on the situation on the Take Back Urbanhomesteading(s) facebook page. It’s crazy that it’s gotten to this point!

  3. Every one in Michigan has the right to grow vegetables under the law. Michigan that the “MICHIGAN RIGHT TO FARM ACT
    Act 93 of 1981” State law supersedes any local ordinance. You can grow your vegetables any where you want if you are farming them.
