Urban Farming Under Threat

Hi Atlanta,

At the core of the Farm-to-Consumer Legal Defense Fund's mission is protecting the right to produce and access farm-fresh foods. In a recent case that is gaining national attention, one FTCLDF member's right to provide food for her family is in jeopardy.

Aja Yasir and her husband, Yasir Allah, grow hundreds of varieties of medicinal herbs, fruits, and vegetables at their home in Gary, Indiana. Unfortunately, the city of Gary has taken issue with Aja's urban farm multiple times.

Aja and Yasir are practicing a fundamental right, one that is continuously under threat, by growing food. FTCLDF attorneys have asked for a continuance of the hearing and
plan to defend Aja in a trial opposing the nuisance citation.

We will continue to follow this story and will update our community as we learn more about this important case.
As always, have a super week!
