Drummondville's front yard vegetable garden

Drummondville's front yard vegetable garden

As they’re about to turn 50, and wanting to adopt a more healthy lifestyle, Josée and Michel decide to plant a vegetable garden outside their home in the suburbs of Drummondville, Quebec. Their backyard had little sun exposure, so they decide to set up the garden in the front yard. Once the garden beds are in place and the vegetables have started growing, the city asks them to remove their garden to put lawn back, but the couple decides to fight.

    What a genius idea! But how do you manage to produce tomatoes outdoors? They like warm weather. In England I have to plant them inside a greenhouse to be able to get a decent harvest.

    Great story & this Couple are an Inspiration. Good for them for standing up for what is right. Cheers to them : )

    Until I have watched this I have never thought that it would be illegal to have a garden in your front yard. That is crazy! Glad they were able to make changes in the law. That’s called edible landscaping nowadays.

    Dont all the planters/wood based structures have to be replaced every 2 years? That would suck to have to replace all of that every 2 years.

    I just love you both so much for standing up for your rights to grow your own food!

  14. Alan Horning on June 1, 2019 at 11:17 pm

    there should be fruits trees in the public parks and green areas instead decorative trees and have no use but to ugly the parks , but the mafia of the mass food production don’t want people have something to eat , but to buy from them or let them starve  and eat junk food so they will get sick and die soon. as they planned for everybody else that don’t watch what they eat.

  16. Eonia Grace on June 1, 2019 at 11:18 pm

    It actually goes way beyond just simple HOA and town council rules. The NWO globalist agenda has a norm chapter IN WRITING determining who control the seeds, what kind of seeds, and who, where, and what kind of food stuff is allowed to be planted around the world. In order for them to control the food supply, food prices, profits and social organization from towns and small villages, and to promote permanent dependence of human beings on the NWO controlled organization’s and "Non profits" org’s products and services. Pretty insidious and brain washing strategies. Yes, we have to fight against all this globalist controlling non-sense, they only win if we do nothing and obey. I’m glad these folks put up a fight and won. Most people are sheep, and/or to lazy to think for themselves – much less to put up a fight against City Hall. Congratulations et bon apettit!

  17. John Cozen on June 1, 2019 at 11:23 pm

    Heck, yea! Go Josée and Michel and KGI! Fight for your right to grow food!

  18. Shiraz Chakraverty on June 1, 2019 at 11:24 pm

    You have set such a great example for all of us who have the space and just did not take the plunge and you have explained such a simple way to go about it, thankyou

    Sometimes i do not understand the actions of developed world.
    I live in developing country in Africa and something like this will never happed.
    Why would anyone complain about vegetable garden in the first place?

  20. Tina Yo on June 1, 2019 at 11:24 pm

    I watched this video many times 👍💕💕💕💕💕

    avez vous influencé vos voisins ??

  22. Eonia Grace on June 1, 2019 at 11:26 pm

    It looks great! But…Don’t stray animals eat your unprotected harvest? How about people stealing the fruits of your labor, at night, for example? Do you live at an enclosed condominium so you have your garden protected? This fortunately would not work in many communities, I would rather do it in my backyard and not stress over my full fledged beautiful garden out in the open up front. If if work where you live, more power to you!

    Beautiful and inspiring! May I ask where did you buy the seeds for your vegetables garden? Thanks.

  27. Patricia Hammett on June 1, 2019 at 11:30 pm

    I applaud you for the stand you took. Enjoy your garden, you’ve certainly earned the right to do so.

  28. Victoria Bishop on June 1, 2019 at 11:30 pm

    This was my first visit to your channel and I had a delightful time. Michel’s improved health is fantastic, as is meeting your neighbors and having fun watching your efforts produce beautiful and delicious vegetables. Your home and your agricultural plantings make a very special presentation. I look forward to any future videos you make. I subscribed and will hope for notifications that you have more to share.

    Lovely garden, but take a breath lady, allow your partner to be a part of the conversation.

    It’s a very stupid thing for governments to try and restrict front yard… or any type of small garden. Lawns are the bigger problem. Lawns are resource hogs in terms of human resources and water. They also require constant fertilization and potentially herbicides and/or pesticides to make them aesthetically desirable. Yet they produce nothing. Go with the garden!

    Please help those of us in the USA who are under ridiculous and arbitrary Homeowner’s Association rules to get these changed.

    Green space you cant get more green than a garden

  37. Henry Tun on June 1, 2019 at 11:42 pm

    I love the way you go through the passion. It is neat and lush green. So it won’t upset neighbours, and visitors. I am glad you guys educate the city bylaws. If need support, I am in. Cheering from Vancouver, BC.

    Awesome front yard

  43. Sultan Afandi on June 1, 2019 at 11:45 pm

    Its hard for living in there. In Indonesia if you have land space, people free to plant anything, and we dont have any problem in law. Except if you plant a mariyuana.

    Bravo! Beautiful garden, and edible, can anything be more perfect?
    Glad you fought the silly city council and made it possible for others to follow your example.

  47. Fred Derf on June 1, 2019 at 11:49 pm

    Maine past a law called food freedom where you can grow and sell within city limits !! Things are a changing and people are waking up that farmers and growers have been doing it wrong for 200 years . You guys have another supper hero up there , Curtis Stone . He grows in downtown where he lives and sells !!

  48. yushi911 on June 1, 2019 at 11:49 pm

    C’est un très jolie jardin et bien entretenu. Je ne vois pas de problème.

  49. Paige on June 1, 2019 at 11:50 pm

    Where I live, you have to PAY for a small well just to water your garden. I will have to hire a company to dig a small well that can be dug by hand and the powers that be say that shallow wells are no longer dug and that I have to have a well that is 270 feet deep. I wonder who really cares if I had dig a well and why. So sick of democratic cities.
