URBAN GARDENS UNDER ATTACK?
DEFEND OUR LOCAL FOOD SOURCES

BFUU, 1924 Cedar Street (at Bonita) in Berkeley

CONSCIENTIOUS PROJECTOR FILM SERIES of the
Social Justice Committee of the Berkeley Fellowship of Unitarian
Universalists presents:

Berkeley Code Enforcement is selectively fining activists for supposed
“violations” in their gardens with fines that amount to
extortion and eviction. They target neighbors actively engaged in
helping communities gain some self-sufficiency by organizing
permaculture skill shares, work parties, and growing diverse, edible,
organic gardens that inspire and feed hungry people, wildlife, bees
and other beneficials. In this time of global climate change,
ecological collapse, and economic distress, tax dollars are wasted on
harassment of urban gardeners by city officials who single out
activists for otherwise ignored code, as well as on county and state
insect trapping programs that frequently target such gardens with
pesticides and quarantines. Homegrown food and ecology is not a
crime!
