I loved this article and have one addition: check your state laws too.

In Michigan, we have a "Right to Farm Act" that is quite strong. In very over-simplified sense (I am not an attorney) is says that once you have a commercial interest in your "farm", it is indeed a farm and local ordinances have to take a back seat to the act that allows you to farm.

In some cities in Michigan this has allowed urban farmers to either go their own way under the act or use a huge stick when negotiating with the city about changing ordinances.

Congratulations Cedar Rapids! Here's hoping more cities will relax the controls and regulations a bit to encourage sustainability and more vibrant residential communities. Thanks Rebecca!

Absolutely Brilliant! Good job Rebecca! Thank you for taking on an issue that may not be important in comparison to most problems today but still needed attention.
