    Should you have to have a permit to grow your own garden at your residence?

    A neighbor of a friend of mine proposed this to her city council. She wanted people to have to get a permit to grow a garden in their own yard. In order to get the permit, your immediate neighbors would have to sign off on it.

    Is this in the front yard? Or do they mean in any part of the property?

    No, unless you've signed onto a HOA that restricts this its your property.

    I take issue with a great many zoning laws.

    absolutely not. if my neighbors want to control my back yard, they can pay rent.

    luckily, my neighbors aren't jerks. sometimes I give them tomatoes.

    Re: Should you have to have a permit to grow your own garden at your residence?

    Within reason, I would suggest that the answer is "No". However, I have seen situations where individuals or families have expanded simple home gardens into sizeable plots of agricultural land either for personal use or for commercial enterprise. So long as it is not an eyesore to the neighborhood, you're not using it for a commercial venture, and/or you are not requiring agricultural vehicles to tend the garden I would suggest that a permit should not be required. As soon as any of those other conditions are met, I would suggest that some sort of licensing or oversight should be involved.

    No, you shouldn't have to get a permit to have a garden at home. The only reason I would think it valid for the city/county/township/whatever government to step in is if you're somehow making a nuisance of yourself with it.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
