How dare you try to grow some veggies in your yard, and your kids trying to sell their lemonade!

YOU ARE A WITCH! BURN IT WITH FIRE!!!

Your "type" should be given life in prison, sharing a cell with a pedo.

You can pay off everything you bought or leased or whatever, but remember folks, you still gotta pay those property taxes!

So what?? Don't grow vegetables in town. Move to the country. I grow whatever I want when I want and pump water out of the creek below the house to water it. I pumped 600 gal. this weekend and nobody said shit! MOVE AWAY AND DO WHATEVER YOU WANT AND QUIT WHINING!!! Geez....

Dumbass, do your really believe they are going to let you do what you want out there? There's a reason the White House established a Rural Council. They are coming after you. What happens in the city is going to reach you eventually. You are not an island.

Re: Illegal Front Yard Garden: Canadian Couple's Kitchen Garden Targeted By Authorities
if they don't like the laws they should try to get them changed

or just grow the garden in the back yard????
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 20236932


The latter sounds like a good idea. One good reason that I can think of for a garden taking up your entire front yard being illegal is maybe people being more likely to steal your fruits and veggies?

Re: Illegal Front Yard Garden: Canadian Couple's Kitchen Garden Targeted By Authorities
1st I'd have to wonder if the city would be upset if it was either flat concrete OR non-edible plants. 2nd the City is just a stinking corporation that was established to do things like contract for services. Since when does a corporation get to tell me what I can and cannot do with my own property?

Watch some videos with Dean Clifford, a Canadian, who has some real eye-opening stuff about what a corporation has the power to do or not.

Basically the corp has nothing without a contract in place between you and it, and just moving into the city doesn't establish a contract. The City just forces it down your throat and nobody understands that there is no contract.

The City can't even make laws. The best they can do is rules, regulations and ordinances, which are not laws. You can tell them to shove it.

Re: Illegal Front Yard Garden: Canadian Couple's Kitchen Garden Targeted By Authorities
There is a similar 30% law in a nearby town. Its a fire law, the fire-department must have access to the house in case of fire.

If you look at the image, there are raised beds and trellises, these would hamper firefighters if there was a fire.

Personally I would never put a vegetable garden in the front yard (street side of the house). Especially in a place where it snows and they plow and salt roads. That salt and soot and sand gets into the lawn soil and that hampers the health of plants, plus all of the road crap that is also scraped up each time its plowed, oil, asphalt, rubber, whatever.
 Quoting: Bowyn Aerrow


EXACTLY my sentiments! I have no issue with front yard gardens--- BUT, I would never plant so close to the curb. You've got exhaust fumes and oil on a daily basis. I wouldn't want anything from the front section of that garden.

We, the undersigned, stand in solidarity with front yard gardeners Josée Landry and Michel Beauchamp and call upon you to reverse your decision ordering them to remove their gardens by July 24th or face legal consequences. Front yard gardens aren't the problem; they're part of the solution.

Re: Illegal Front Yard Garden: Canadian Couple's Kitchen Garden Targeted By Authorities
Well one thing is for sure. Legistlation is NOT LAW, and the city is breaking its office of trust as an employee of the people to dictate in any way, what percentage of garden a person can have, or what part of the yard.

PERIOD.

And that means this must be taken to court, not only against the constitution.

But when your servants, read mcdonalds worker employees break trust adn if you have a bad judge, the correct procedure is to pass the hat, and get a dozen PI's on them and nail their asses to the wall.

Restore justice and get rid of corruption.

Take a look at Josée Landry and Michel Beauchamp's gorgeous front yard kitchen garden in Drummondville, Quebec. The cucumbers, tomatoes, zucchinis, beets, onions, and brussels sprouts and other vegetables grown by the couple helped Beauchamp lose 75 pounds, and Landry 25.

The only problem? It's illegal.

You don't "own" your land, that is why you pay taxes on it.
Stop paying it and see what happens to your house ;)

They own YOU, and they will TELL you what to DO.

Deep breath's and try not to let it scare you so bad. They have been saying this boogeyman nonsense for years whether it is the 'Man in the biosphere' or 'Rural Council', maybe I'm just not fearful enough to live in the world you live in. And yes, I've been doing what I want to for many years.
