Beware of the Front Yard Gardener – Really?

September 20, 2011

Bear with me fellow harvest managers, while we stand in solidarity with a front yard gardener.

The front yard garden of Adam Guerrero in Memphis TN has been labeled a crime scene.  He’s accused of violating city ordinances 48-38 and 48-97 for failure to maintain “a clean and sanitary condition free from any accumulation of rubbish or garbage”.

High school math teacher Guerrero uses the garden as a teaching tool, but now he’s been ordered to remove it by September 23rd.

Visit the Kitchen Garderner‘s blog to see how you can help Adam keep his garden.  Personally, I’m going start by joining the Facebook page called Save Adam Guerrero’s Garden

    Update on Adam’s garden – The judge says he can keep it, as long as he makes a few modifications here and there. In fact, the court says the city will help find a plot of land he can use to create a community garden. According to this article in The Memphis Flyer, the judge was pretty impressed with the global social outcry.
