Gardeners In Trouble with the Law

Feb 14, 2012

Here’s the latest dispatch from the “Oh, no, here we go again” desk about what appears to be a responsible global citizen getting in trouble with local law officials for doing right by the planet. This case concerns a Canadian gardener named Frank Teuton who has been cited 4 times for violating town code standards for cleanliness, weed control and garbage. According to the article below, he received his latest citation for, among other things, a “rusty shovel.” Frank’s next court date is June 11th. We’ll be watching this case between now and then to see how we can bring our collective influence to bear. For now, please share this to raise awareness and protect the right to garden and compost.
