Front Yard Veggie Garden – Cleared of All Charges

Earlier this month, GeekMom Kris Bordessa wrote about the story of a Michigan woman, Julie Bass, who was being prosecuted for having a front yard garden. The Bass family put in the garden after their lawn had to be torn up due to a sewer line that needed to be repaired.

I’ve been following Julie Bass’ blog ever since because the story interested me, along with being in my home state of Michigan. The original charges were dropped, but then the city was going after the Bass family due to having dogs that weren’t licensed.

The dogs did get licensed, but Julie Bass was still due to appear in court on July 26th on the charges against her. Julie blogged after her court date that all the charges were dropped. They are allowed to keep their front yard garden and their dogs are safe from further legal action.

You can read the whole story of the court date at Julie’s blog.
