Anybody heard about this?
One of my wife’s friends on her gardening forums posted this there:
[quote]Hello My Friends,
Recently I heard a story that city officials in Tulsa Oklahoma were drafting legislation that would outlaw and criminalize backyard gardening. I thought this was preposterous, so I decided to check into it myself. Unfortunately what I found was even more disturbing and disheartening.
Currently there are two bills, one in the house HR875, and one in the Senate S425, that would outlaw and criminalize organic farming and backyard gardening.
These bills are sponsored by corporate farming conglomerates, chemical corps, and GMO seed producers such as Monsanto, ADM, Cargyle, and several others.
Please spread the word and do what you can to oppose these bills. Call your friends, fellow gardeners, congressmen, and senators. We have less than two weeks before they vote on this issue.[/quote]
Could be BS, I haven’t heard and haven’t had a second to check yet, but it sure wouldn’t surprise me.
