Most houses have neighborhood guidelines.

The guidelines for this neighborhood state that the front yard must be at least 30% grass.

If you choose to violate those guidelines, the authorities will act.

They should have planted their garden behind their house.

This isn't about lifestyle or the man clamping down on your right to grow vegetables. It's about codes covenants and restrictions for a neighborhood.

The question is WHY? Why would anyone need a rule saying you have to have water guzzling grass at least %30. That is so insane! there should never be rules beyond CLEAN garbage free and healthy. As in no rat causing mess.
Maybe they have a veggie garden behind the house as well.

Oh bull crap. It is too about the man forcing you to look like everyone else, eat like everyone else.
Personally, i think you should be able to go to WAR over idiots trying to control you to this extent.

When you buy a house or condo, you agree to lots of rules about your neighborhood. If you don't want to abide by those rules, live somewhere else.

Personally, I live in the country. I have a huge garden and lots of trees.

Once again, this is about what the homeowner agreed to when they bought in that neighborhood.

Why are restrictive gated community style policies being codified into law? One wonders if the 30/70 regulation would have been enforced if a more traditional approach to landscaping had been employed: would local authorities have kicked up as much fuss about shrubs and flowers?

I wish I knew, because I am deeply uneasy with the idea that we won't be permitted to grow food on our own properties.

Regardless, we still have our backyards, our community gardens, etc. They're gonna have a very difficult time cracking down on those.

A lot of people only have a small patio in the back of their houses also.

I don't know vegetables can get to looking pretty messy. Not some thing you really want to look at. They don't have much of a front yard there anyway.How much food they really growing. #, they could still make their statement and meet that 30% rule. If you want food grow it in the back yard. Looks like a nice neighborhood too.I don't know why everyone thinks conspericy conspiricy consparicy aw you know conspiracy when local government wants to enforce some benign code asking you to have a little respect for you neighbors. Glad he got the soil all prepped up though, just in case.

Napolionic Law.
EVERYTHING will be considered poison, every plant fruit and vegetable, UNLESS it is approved!
Who will APPROVE these food sources? Those with enough money to perform the tests such as....MONSANTO!!!

EVERY single food source will have to be approved. How will those people in the OP get there vegies approved???

People talk about when TSHTF...ha!! if that was going to happen it would be happening RIGHT NOW!

Watch the vid below, ALL OF YOU!!! Its the most important vid you'll ever see.





Correctly put, they will try. Legislation is not LAW. Only what is constitutional and what is basic common law of not harming, is law. Enforcing unlawful legislation is a crime in itself and ignorance of the law is not an excuse.

For every draconian law they muster, we will flagrantly break it if necessary and bring this up legally in huge write ups to enlist the aid of constitutional lawyers should they ever attempt this.

Further, considering the corruption at the top, it will be necessary to pass the hat and garner dozens of investigators to dig the ugliest and dirtiest secrets concerning judges, and representatives, OH, just to ensure they don't break their office of trust, we'll have to make an example of a few of them.

And another thing. I can't for the life of me figure why any government. ruling class, king whoever is going to be running this show after the thing falls apart, would want to count how many cabbages you had on your front lawn. I guess you all must be thinking of the corporate takeover of our basic need, food. In which case don't worry you won't starve. That would"t do them any good.The real issue is when the corporations fail. Then you got a real problem. All 7 billion of us.

I'm thinking growing food is like riding a bicycle, the skills are going to come back quick.

By the way, this pertains to the couple. They may have to transfer their plants indoors and use grow lights, and the back yard. Even living walls work for many things.


Vertical Garden Lettuce

This fall this is my kitchen, herbs and greens, tomatoes and peppers. We're even going to get zuccini and potatoes in boxes. Kale.

But, they have to rally awareness for the criminal and non constitutional violation of their rights to the land and resources of this planet and to the fascism involved.

These laws are unlawful.

I hear what your saying but as we are all witnessing on a daily basis, the law is whatever that man pointing the gun says it is, and if we argue, well they got a nice cell waiting for us.

I often look around at my neighbours and people who live close by and I ask myself, How many of them would stand up and say - Enough!

I dont think any of them would

What is not happening, and what is the very thing needed. Community awareness groups.

For example, on issues just like this, PRO BONO lawyers should stand up. So this couple needs to make the case up and public asking for help to stop this tyranny and gain support from public.

With regards to the rest

I'm going to do this. I suggest people start these movements and ensure more and more join in.

And don't ever forget the PI's, that part is very important. Nail a few to the wall and see the rest do the right thing.

Not joking. we have to do the right thing.

Look at your child's face, then the ugly mugshot, back again and make a good decision. I will be doing everything publically. That is to say, will not hide it.

If we make free energy it will be shared with the neighbors and exported to the whole city, and shared with all the others and OPENLY.

I don't believe in backing down, but grabbing the BULLHORN and firing the cannon of justice over and over in their face.

We're going to need pro bono type lawyers and also, this: constitutional law and rigths taught to all communities with groups.

For example, those authorities that threatened to remove the plants were violating their constitutional rights and the very basic rights, and many things are like that.

The law enforcers are committing a crime, by enforcing a crime, and ignorance of the law is not an excuse.

Educated citizens are going have to ask for their higher ups and even the higher legal officers and explain the law and that enforcing this makes them criminals. And video tape the entire thing.

Well it dawned on me, that this is a huge issue and the legal way, we need to approach their NWO illegal house of cards. Even the Nazi's passed legislation that was illegal to world law, based on the Virtues of Common Law, and while many of use realize alot of them escaped justice, many were hung by their signatures on documents.

So, what better way, than non profits and legal help in every town, and matching even volunteers and Pro Bono Lawyers, and even some outstanding lay people.

This is the way to tackle UN things too.

This couple needs to protect their plants then work on gaining some courage and making a legal stink and getting the help they need, all the while educating their community on their rights.

They're not backing down at all. In fact they've already taken it further in the fight than most:

Urban kitchen garden activist and blogger Roger Doiron got behind the fight and organized an impressive worldwide petition called Stop the War on Front Yard Vegetable Gardens. As of Sunday, they had 800 signatures, yesterday 8,000, and today almost 11,000 and counting. The couple's "bed-in" peaceful protest, Lennon-Ono style, also garnered much support and media attention.

They've already started to get the word out and create awareness as to their case. I don't believe the authorities expected it but they've got a real fight on their hands.
Here are a few links and sources for the couple:

Sign the petition: www.causes.com...

Facebook group: www.facebook.com...

Have a look at their site and those in support. It's in French but use the translate button at the top.

I don't think it's going too far in saying that we will soon be hiding our carrots and peas in the basement.

I always knew that I would see changes to this World in my lifetime but never in a million years could I have envisioned veggie criminals...sigh.

Peace

This is a problem quite opposite to what we are used to. Usually it is the federal government who wants to limit / trample our rights. In these cases, it is a bunch of idiots, namely the un-intelligent shleps who make up most local governments. Typically decades behind in understanding of technology, the world, modern trends, healthy living, etc.

These are easy to overcome. Get a local movement going to put pressure on local politicians, or get smarter people elected to local government positions, the village of "anytown", population 35,000 doesn't have 6 members of the Skull & Bones society, 2 oil execs, 3 pharma execs, and 2 monsanto execs sitting on the board. Its just a few dumb hillbillies who just plain don't get it. I live in Streamwood, I'll, a town of 30k+, surrounded by dozens of other towns and Chicago. We're in the midst if a huge metropolitan area, but our municipal code is written by a few average Joe's (and one Billie, our mayor) - they are not beholden to Monsanto, etc., and I doubt any of them are strongly opposed to gardens. They just haven't bothered, or been asked to bother, with changing the code to allow more gardens (we might be allowed to have full front-yard gardens, I don't know - but just as an example.)

Get petitions signed if your town doesn't allow them, go to board meetings, etc. If all else fails, run for a seat on the board, or encourage someone of like mind who is retired or out of work to do so if its too time-consuming. Local gov is easy to influence if you and other residents do so. Writing tickets for violating existing municipal code is also easy to do, If you don't like the laws, get them changed, it really isn't that difficult.

grass drive ways and grass path between veg plus vertical grassgowers where they can give as feed to the local petting zoo or farmer
