If you think people should have a right to plant vegetable gardens wherever they want on their property, including the front yard, you need to know about Adam Guerrero.

He’s a a school teacher in Memphis who planted a veggie garden in front of his house, turning a non-productive patch of grass into a food generator. Guerrero uses his garden to teach his students about self-reliance, and nutrition.

It’s hard to imagine that anyone would disapprove of such a project, but because of a neighbor’s complaint, Guerrero has been cited by a judge and ordered to take down the garden.

Kitchen Gardeners International has put out an appeal for help. The group is hoping to gather supporters for home gardens who will help this humble math teacher stand his ground.
