muito lovavel, contem comigo.....
insanity begins with the monolith of government.
By growing our own foods we have control over what we put in it & know what we are putting in our bodies & hopefully by more people growing their own gardens we will be hurting Monsanto! :)
Zoning was put in place to create an aesthetic supporting a feeling of local community, especially in the 1950s. This may be as obsolete as the All Electric Home concept, which also was a `1950s era promotion. Local zoning for aesthetics and building standards are in the way of green building and solar or other renewables development.
I would rather see a vegetable garden in the front yard then junk cars and or beer bottles. I am sorry Christine, who are you to say what should be grown where? Image to uphold please, in this day and age. With all the Vacant lots and foreclosed properties? I guess I must be living in the wrong part of the world.
Deborah Mills? So some places making it against the law to grow a garden on a front yard?
I find it absurd that it should be against the law.
Note, I am not defending him, but, some places have an image to uphold. If they grew the garden in the back yard, it wouldn't be an issue. That is, if you have a decent size back yard.
what image are you talking about? - I do not care where food is coming from - is that the image
Here in the United States, some residencies have restrictions and deed limited areas. With that said, if someone has a deed in that area, and it states that the front lawn must be up kept and looking nicely. I like growing my own fruits and veggies as much as the next person, I just use areas that some people wouldn't consider an eye sore. His isn't to us, but to others, it is.
Orlando officials, if you can talk the talk, ya' better walk the walk and allow residents grow their own food and help them save money rather than wasting tax dollars on frivelous, backwards-minded ordinances such as this, dispense with your anti-vegetartian/anti-vegan attitude, embrace the 21st Century, and allow folks to grow their veggie gardens...Or else, you'll find yourselves living in cardboard shacks underneath highway bridges, in rags, be looking for your next meal from a garbage can!
Oops, that should be (anti)-VEGETARIAN...
Actually, it owuld be great if folks here could reject
animal meat in favor of vegetarian/vegan products,
for the betterment of health AND our Earth's animal kingdom. :)

Didn't a couple in Canada (Montreal?) just go through this about 6 months ago? There was a huge petition response and in the end, the municipal gov. ended up changing the ordinance and hiring the couple to help establish a new policy ALLOWING front yard gardens? Why do we have to keep visitng the same stupid stuff over and over? What is it with people? I think a pretty, well tended vegetable garden is quite lovely, and an addition to any neighborhood! Not to mention exactly what...

Not to mention exactly what Michelle Obama is trying to promote - more fresh vegetables in our crappy national diet!
I have to give our First Lady lots of credit for her cause in
promoting a healthy diet of fruits and veggies.
I've been a vegetarian since 1984 and we can get our
protein, vitamins, minerals, and fiber from plant-based sources
such as beans, spinach, kale, broccoli, blueberries and other fruits, nuts, etc.,
and reject animal meat altogether. :)
McMinnville is full of front and side yard gardens. They don't stand out any more than flowers and are very pretty. When you walk around so that you can see all the things growing they're quite inspiring. I do think if people have front yard gardens they should look nice. But I have neighbors with roses and such in their front yard who park on their grass like it's a ghetto and snarly weeds are all over - I'd rather have a pretty garden!
AS I was going to say..WAKE UP AND SMELL THE VEGETABLE!
puff c'est pas possible de voir encore des gens qui trouve çà bizarre alors qu'ici on en a tous un de ptit jardin! c'est essentiel pour bien manger.
ha ces américains!!!
