Petty Bureaucrats Threaten Woman with 93-Day Jail Sentence - For Growing Vegetables
reports that the city of Oak Park, MI is coming down hard on Julie Bass for planting a vegetable garden in her front yard.
The city and the Bass family are at odds over the meaning of the local code that reads;
“...all unpaved portions of the site shall be planted with grass or ground cover or shrubbery or other suitable live plant material”
Ms. Bass has started a blog,
Oak Park Hates Veggies
, to chronicle her running battle with the city.
