Oak Park MI Front yard garden persecution
So, after their front yard was torn up for a new sewer line Julie Bass of Oak Park, MI, very close to Detroit, put in a raised bed vegetable garden instead of grass.
Now the city - in the person of Planning and Technology Director Kevin Rulkowski - has ticketed her, and is threatening to put her in jail for 90 days because of the tomatoes on her front "lawn".
She has a Facebook page - Oak Park Hates Veggies.
And a blog - http://oakparkhatesveggies.wordpress.com/

If I had a front garden here in Philly, I'd be growing veg as well.
