Food freedom alert: City authorities in Ferguson, Mo., threaten to tear down another fully legal front yard garden

by Jonathan Benson, Natural News:

The city of Ferguson, Missouri, a suburb of St. Louis, is trying to intimidate local resident Karl Tricamo into removing his organic, front-yard produce garden for what it says are numerous violations of local zoning laws. However, Ferguson’s zoning laws do not, in fact, prohibit the type of garden Tricamo cultivates in any way, which means the city is illegally harassing him without reason or justification.

Rather than cultivate a typical grass lawn, which is usually a water- and chemical-intensive endeavor, Tricamo decided instead to grow organic fruits and vegetables so he could feed his son healthy, chemical-free food. All of Tricamo’s crops, after all, are heirloom, organic, non-GMO, and non-hybrid, and he maintains them with the utmost care and respect, ensuring that they are not a nuisance to his neighbors.

But Ferguson code enforcement officials allegedly began to pursue Tricamo after what they said was a complaint filed by a neighbor. Tricamo received several letters from the city petitioning him to remove the garden and replace it with a typical lawn in order to achieve “minimum standards,” as well as at least six separate visits from code enforcement officials citing bogus code violations.

    Calling out all Missouri state militia to protect this citizen for evil city politicians violating his right. Form up and stand guard at his home!

    Try an evil neighbor. The city officials wouldn’t have even known if some busybody neighbor hadn’t decided he/she didn’t like what this guy was doing with his own property. This is another example of some lowlife running to the government to get them to remove somebody else’s freedom of usage of their own property.

    Or what I now realize since I read Jeff Berwick is “slave on slave” action. You have slaves running to the slava massa to turn in other slaves like some demented kindergarten tattletale.
