Paging Alice Waters

Because of his garden (which is in plastic pots) and compost, a Berkeley man was fined $3000 and faces subsequent fines of $3000 a day if he doesn't destroy the garden: "Even if he pays the fee to legalize his urban gardening operation, he has to go through public hearings and it's not a guarantee he will be approved. 'We're going to shut him down,' said Berkeley Code Enforcement Supervisor Gregory Daniel." Someone put up the batsignal for the Waters-Pollan brigade. [Oakland Trib]
