Gardening is not a crime: Woman charged with misdemeanor for having a garden

Please like us on Facebook > The Natural Health Page

Gardening and crime don't really sound like they go together, but when faced with an overbearing government bureaucracy anything is possible. This video is a prime example of what happens when the government gets out of control and the corporate grocery industry has it's tentacles around the local city politicians. Julie Bass was fined and charged with a misdemeanor for planting an organic garden in her front yard.



A more in depth look at Julie's situation:

  1. The garden is beautiful if everyone could have a garden like this it would improve the quality of life for everyone it is a healthy thing.
    It is how human kind should live. The benefits are far greater then
    The risk. For all of society. Wake up and smell the possibility

  2. Looks well kept and not an eye sore. So i say let this family be. Oh and what do we do with the yards that have extravagant landscaping like ponds, fountains, gazebos, palm trees(where not common), excessive flowers, Big Rocks or boulders, you see where I'm going with this? Any thing not in the norm should be banned? NO NO NO is my answer. If we all supposed to be the same type or kind of person/human then we would already be that. We are not, so let us be the individuals we are with dignitary uniqueness. Food for though from Jason.

  4. RIDICULOUS!!!!!!! Maybe she wants the backyard for her children to play in. Absolutely the most absurd thing I have heard thus far this year, the politician on the video is a chump. I think all the neighbors need to start growing gardens in their front yards lol. It's YOUR yard/home you should be able to do what you want as long as it isn't a mess. I swear some people just like to complain to hear themselves talk, and want to debate something just to try and 'win' something even though it's not bothersome to them, or really anyone else. These people must be on crack or something.

  5. The problem lies with being part of things like "Home Owner's Associations." THEY have control over WHAT you can and cannot DO to YOUR OWN property. People KNOWINGLY purchase homes and SIGN ON in order to live in those areas/developments, and then later down the line they find themselves wanting to add a garden, or perhaps a fence, or maybe even change the color of their home on the outside and are met with disapproval from these organizations. People need to READ ALL of what they sign BEFORE they sign it and CONSIDER what they may want in the future. It is my guess this is the situation here, but the article FAILS to tell us that.

    1. You don't need to be in a home owner's association to have these type of problems. Any city or township can make ordinances. Just living in a 'state' can cause these restrictions. The state gives power to the county and the townships/cities/village. This isn't a case of buyer beware.

    2. It's my guess that you haven't watched the video or read the thread properly, or else you would know that this controversy hinges on the word "suitable", and the local authority's interpretation of this. Nowhere is it suggested or claimed that anything the owner signed was explicit in forbidding a vegetable garden. That begs the question, why should the Home Owner's Association or whoever it is, retrospectively introduce an ordnance forbidding one when the agreement mentions nothing of the sort? Have they not read the agreement they signed?

    1. yeah you do need to be informed.... Lawyers all work for the courts... they do not represent the people, they represent the court. They along with the judges and prosecutors all work for The Bar association. Do a little research into what the BAR is. They are bringing charges (look up what CHARGES are)against this woman when there is no injured victim in this case. From the Maxims of Law, corpus delicti, and People v. Lopez states that for EVERY prosecution there must be an injured victim. If they say the city or the state is the victim ask them to prove it cuz the burden of proof relies on them now. LEARN THE LAWS AND HOW TO PROTECT YOURSELF FROM CORRUPT GOVERNMENTS PEOPLE. If you do research in to what statues, acts and ordinances are you'll actually see they are ALL consent based. People do not trust lawyers, they do not have your best interest at heart. Its actually a conflict of interest and you can have the judges recused because both the prosecutor and the judge both belong to the BAR association. Its like playing a football game where the refs are paid by the opposite team, you'll never have a fair shot.

  8. The neighbors of this poor lady should get some pots and plant some food plants in them and stick them in the middle of their laws in protest... then it will be "common"

  9. this guy from the city said common... well shouldn't it be common that people grow their own veggies and fruit... ohh wait means these people aren't getting enough GMOs and Monsanto can't charge these people to grow these crops... that's where the real issue is... this world disgusts me
