Apparently, Michigan hasn't caught on to the whole local food first idea. Julie Bass, an Oak Park, Mich. woman is facing 93 days in jail for planing a vegetable garden in her own front yard.
"The price of organic food is kind of through the roof, so why not grow your own?" Bass said.
Maybe the cops are working for Whole Foods on the side now?
Actually, the front yard garden violates city code. Oak Park City Planner Kevin Rulkowski simply says "That's not what we want to see in a front yard."
Bass said the neighborhood kids love to help her in the garden and that its a benefit for people to learn how to grow their own food.
Take a look at the picture of the garden above. What do you think about Bass' front yard garden? Eye sore or good idea?
