You say tomato, I say code violation: Judge wages war against urban gardener

You say tomato, I say code violation: Judge wages war against urban gardener

This instance comes from the Nutbush section of Memphis, where high school math teacher and GrowMemphis board member Adam Guerrero is being ordered by a judge to dismantle his allegedly code-breaking home garden (see the garden in its not-very-offensive-at-all glory here ) where he not only grows tomatoes, eggplant and peppers but keeps honeybees, harvests rainwater, composts, and produces his own biodiesel. Additionally, Guerrero opens his urban greenspace to students for both math lessons and tutorials in sustainable agriculture . The order — Judge Larry Potter of the Shelby County Environmental Court calls the garden a “nuisance” containing “rubbish or garbage” — stems from a neighbor’s complaint (but of course). Ugh.
