Get Farming, L.A! 'Fruit & Flowers Freedom Act' Approved
An ordinance expanding what Angelenos can grow at home and later sell was approved by the L.A. City Council today.
The "Fruit and Flowers Freedom Act," as it is called, changed the city's Truck Gardening ordinance, which said only vegetables and herbs could be grown, trucked to a market and sold. Now, the old law has been updated to include fruit, flowers and numerous edible categories like mushrooms, berries and nuts.
Once signed into law by the Mayor, residents can grow these on-site and sell them off-site legally. Past LAist posts on the act can be found here.
