It is Now Legal in L.A. to Grow your Own Fruit and Veggies on City Land*

Ron Finley, an urban gardener from South L.A. who helped to make it a reality

By Karoun Chahinian

We’re living in a fast food apocalypse. Considering you need to make a down payment on a salad these days due to high fruit and vegetable prices, getting a fast and cheap burger for lunch has become a popular choice continent-wide.

More and more American families are struggling to afford nutritious food. One creative solution to avoid breaking the bank on fruits and veggies is Guerrilla Gardening: the act of planting produce on someone else’s land, specifically, city-owned land.

It’s weird to think that planting fruits and vegetables is against the law, but this week, the city of Los Angeles has legalized guerrilla gardening and a special thanks is owed to Ron Finley, an urban…

  1. Without prejudice, but we do feel compelled to respond to this post; they use LEGALESE to abrogate your natural right to Life! and the following post is a clear example; to educate the reader:

    In short, the government has NO authority over you and must stay out of your affairs!
    Firstly, the acts/codes/legislation by which the feds claim jurisdiction ONLY applies to PERSONS which are defined as legal fictions:

    Supreme Court of the United States 1795, “Inasmuch as every government is an artificial person, an abstraction, and a creature of the mind only, a government can interface only with other artificial persons. The imaginary, having neither actuality nor substance, is foreclosed from creating and attaining parity with the tangible. The legal manifestation of this is that no government, as well as any law, agency, aspect, court, etc. can concern itself with anything other than corporate, artificial persons and the contracts between them.” S.C.R. 1795, (3 U.S. 54; 1 L.Ed. 57; 3 Dall. 54),

    And they are committing PIRACY (amongst other treasonable acts) as they have NO jurisdiction on the land: they operate under the law of the sea, not the land;

    Lastly, Sir William Blackstone, one of the authorities on common-law stated: “So great moreover is the regard of the law for private property, that it will not authorize the least violation; no, not even for the general good of the whole community.”

    You are a living Sovereign with unalienable rights which where already established! As a living man or woman you have NO accountability to the state, but before a jury of peers; HOWEVER, do not be confused either:

    Take note: U.S. civil common-law is enacted codes, not law v. living common-law which is common sense, customs, maxims (already established principles, ancient precedents, religious and sacred texts etc. Download a Black’s Law Dictionary 4th edition, 1968 or go to our FAQs page for links and how to navigate our pages;

    Enjoy the lawful gardening which is your natural right…

    • Good points here. The problem in my mind is the organized pirates and criminals who control the government are above the law. They don’t follow these codes. Unless you have a large mass movement backing you up, there are serious consequences for individuals who defy them.


      • Education is the most powerful weapon… as we go along we educate those who are the minions and turn them on our side, till there is only the 20 on their side left holding the pirate flag for all to see;

        We took our RSA constitutional hill 3 times peacefully and un-armed without any resistance the last 3 years; they were present and accounted for, but only willing to speak to our Justice though, which we didn’t have then. Now we do and we will be back by January…

        We only have a few oligarchs in RSA and when things get hot they flee the country…
        You folks, on the other hand have got it tough and our prayers are with you;
        you might have to defend yourselves; However, the cabal know there are way more pissed-off ex-vets than loyal black ops; they will get over-run eventually, but the casualties…

        sadly, the white man has a crazy streak in him: if we were still under the Afrikaner government, I would have been ‘disappeared’ already;

        If we were to take our country now, (which would take a week), your pirates will be here in no time to plunder; so, we rather do our court actions and see when you folks stand up; but, stand up you will have to;

        It should be clear to all by now; we only have 2 choices: live on our knees or die on our feet…


  2. I’m surprised this wan’t true before, since people can keep farm animals and ride their horses on city streets there. I lived in LA thirty years ago. Maybe, over the years, they tightened up on these laws?

    This is great!

    Early on its history, the city I live in allowed gardens to be planted on empty city land. I’m going to see if this is still legal here.


    • Better still, commit civil disobedience. As I found in New Plymouth, the mechanisms for enforcing these municipal codes are pretty laughable. It’s usually a civil infringement, which means the worse they can do is issue a fine that is basically unenforceable.
