Like other cases in the news, this couple from Drummondville, Québec, got in trouble with the city for growing vegetables in their front yard. Their clever design is neat and aesthetic. The soil is well contained in raised beds. Really, I fail to see how the city could fault such an impeccable garden.
It was their first year growing vegetables. Their (beautifully captured) 'Bed-In' protest along with heaps of signatures from supporters granted them the right to see the season through and city council now appears open to the concept but has yet to finalize details regarding any new by-laws.
It's time for change, cities. This is a good thing.
