Food and Flowers Freedom Act

Hosted by

Tara Kolla is an urban farmer, growing organic flowers in Silverlake.  She had to stop selling at Farmers Markets because of a 1946 Truck Farming ordinance that prohibits the selling of anything grown on your property except vegetables.

City Council President Eric Garcetti has introduced a motion reversing this ordinance.  Read about the motion, dubbed the Food and Flowers Freedom Act.  Tara and other fellow urban farmers have started the group Urban Farming Advocates.
