We will stand strong together, it is not only our right to grow our own good healthy food in a sustainable way but now a necessity, since most foods are GMO and are poisoning our bodies and Mother Earth, we have a commitment!

why should you be denied to have a garden? You pay the taxes for your home who pays the grocery bills? Your neighbors the town, Neighbors should keep their noses to their own business.As long as the gardens are maintained what's the big problem!

In my front driveway I have built a 8' by 14' x 2' planting bed. It has the best sun on my property. I grow lots of vegetables in it. The action by the city is foolish and is just plain wrong. We grow vegetables all over our property. Does that idiot even know how much work it takes to have what you have done? Dead lawn takes nothing. You spend hours and hours keeping your yard looking like it does. Good on you. Start a defense fund, and I will be happy to send you some money.

Lawns of grass are environmentally unsound: They require extreme amounts of fertilizers that pollute nearby waters with nitrogen runoff, and require tons of watering. A well-mulched garden is is better for keeping water use down. A variety of garden plants also contributes to biodiversity, and some plants like parsleys are host to butterflies. With a lawn, you get moles and grubs--and non-grass 'weeds' which lead to the application of pesticides/herbicides that can then filter into the...

Okay FL, you are quickly becoming to new title holder of "Why are the citizens of FL allowing their leaders to be so irrational" award. The current title holder is TX. But FL is quickly establishing a record to be proud about: 1st you have to be conditioned like a marathon runner to endure the rigors of trying to vote! 2nd One has to pee in a cup and pay the lab for the priviledge of doing so (the lab is partly owned by the current Gov who makes $$$ off this) before you can receive public...

Then it will be state wide. I know it was before our time, but goggle this or read a book: There was a time when a "victory garden" was the most patriotic thing Americans could do. And incidentally, it kept many American from starving to death. Growing one's own food has been the mainstay of American life since the Pilgrims and certainly before the Pilgrims when Native Americans lived that way, off the land. This is insane, YES, insane on it's face. What is wrong with FL? I grew up in FL and it was not the $$ grubbing, irrational place it seems to have become....so again: What's the matter with FL?

They own the property right? They pay taxes right? Private property rights should be protected and growing FOOOOOOD on your own property should be no different!

Lawns are a left over from the expanses that were used to graze sheep in European estates. If you insist on lawns, then have them grazed.
