Can a city destroy a garden without legal permission?
KOTV reports that Denise Morrison grows an edible and medicinal garden of over 100 plant varieties in her front and back yard. Last August, she received a letter from the city reporting a complaint about her yard.
She took photographs of her gardens and went to meet with city inspectors who told her “Everything, everything need to go” when she asked for problem areas to be pointed out.
The issue was taken to court, but before a legal ruling, Morrison found, and photographed, city workers cutting down most of her plants-with what appears to be a bobcat and riding lawnmower -- including trees that bore fruits and nuts.
How can this happen?
