Wait until Michelle Obama hears about this.
A Weston Hills homeowner says she's been ordered to remove her organic garden -- or else.
Amy Becerra, a nurse midwife, took up organic gardening at her home this past summer. Now she has veggies, herbs and fruit growing like crazy.
“I have two different types of carrots, I have four different kinds of strawberries, I have sweet corn, three kinds of peas," Beccera said. "I'm organic gardening because I want a healthier diet. I want to know what's in my food.”
Beccera also likes to show off her home-grown spuds.
“You can see all the roots on them, they're real,” she says, also admiring her purple pole beans. “Another thing you won't find in the grocery store.”
Becerra's been told to get rid of her garden or face $100-a-day fines.
“Their rules do conflict with state law, I believe,” Wolland said.
Retired botany professor Al Will is also helping out, providing the latest information on the Florida Friendly Landscaping legislation.
Wednesday night Becerra was scheduled to present her case to a committe of the homeowners association. When she arrived, they told her the meeting was postponed so they could study this issue further.
At least for now, she doesn't have to pay a fine and she can continue to grow her garden.
