Remember this fabulous front yard garden in Drummondville, Quebec that city officials, in all their wisdom, wanted to dig up? It's staying, thanks to a 30,000-signature petition, media attention and much grousing from sensible people. City council members even invited its creators, Josée Landry and Michel Beauchamp, to help shape the city's new guidelines for urban food gardens. Speak up. It matters.

"It will now be allowed to Drummondville this type of garden in the front yard."

Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
