Suspend enforcement of clearing curbside parkways for herb and vegetable gardens

Suspend enforcement of clearing curbside parkways for herb and vegetable gardens

    1. Petition by

      FooD-I-Y

The Los Angeles City Council voted unanimously to immediately suspend enforcement of clearing curbside parkways in the case of herb and vegetable gardens while the city makes a final determination on legalizing in-soil parkway gardens. We, the undersigned citizens of Oakland, CA, express our desire for the Oakland City Council to vote to immediately suspend enforcement of clearing our city's public curbside parkways in the case of herb and vegetable gardens until the city can make a final determination on legalizing in-soil parkway gardens. We believe this to be beneficial to our community because:

1) allowing gardeners to plant in parkways allows for utilization of land that would otherwise go to waste,

2) creating community-accessible gardens can allow community members access to nutritious and therapeutic plants they may not otherwise receive,

3) parkway gardens can help beautify the city and improve curb appeal.

To:
Suspend enforcement of clearing curbside parkways for herb and vegetable gardens

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      Any block with gardens is such a happier place for them.

      I am resident of Oakland. I love this city and I am proud that our City is considered one of the most "green" cities in USA. Please lets keep it this way!

      The benefits WAY outnumber any conceivable issues with curbside gardens. More earth, not less!

      I love the curbside planters in my immediate stretch of my block. They are a massive improvement over the previous dead patches of dirt collecting debris and the concrete.
