Woman who fought for garden plans move

UPI News Service, 08/10/2011 

A Michigan woman who battled city officials to win the right to keep her front yard vegetable garden said she and her family are moving to Seattle.

Julie Bass made headlines in June when she was ticketed by the city of Oak Park for planting vegetables in her front yard. She said on her blog Monday her family is moving to Seattle so her husband can take a job with, The Detroit News reported Tuesday.

"I'm trying to delay the move until we pick every single last vegetable," Bass wrote.

Bass drew national attention to her battle with the city on her blog and a Facebook page titled "Oak Park Hates Veggies." The related charges, which carried a maximum 93 days in jail and a $100 fine, were dropped last month by City Prosecutor Eugene Lumberg.

Bass said the home garden "was worth it" despite the controversy.

"It was a tremendous thing for our neighbors and our friends … We're sorry to see it go," she said.
