Front yard vegetable gardens. What a great idea!!
In cities and towns everywhere, people are ripping up their yards, both front and back. They are bringing in compost, manure and mulch....and now and then running afoul of bylaws and their enforcement. This garden is in Drummonville Quebec. It is exquisite, but bylaw enforcement ordered it removed. Long story short, they protested and went public. Gardeners from all over the world wrote letters of support for the front yard gardeners. The city backtracked and eventually decided to rewrite the bylaws and asked the homeowners to participate. Way to go Drummondville!
