  • I'm not sure that it's banning home gardens, but more so that if you want to share that produce and/or sell it, you are liable if someone gets sick AND they can charge you for charging others for it.....so those cute little road side fresh produce stands that people do....not allowed if they don't have a license and pay for selling. The costs of licensing your business/produce whatever is more than what the people make and so it becomes that they can't make money off of what they're selling....even just to make a little extra money.

  • Anon. above is exactly right. You can still grow and you will always be able to grow your home garden. You'll just have to register with the FDA data base if you are selling produce or products created from your produce. This way if there is a case of food poisoning, they can track it. No biggie, and actually pretty smart.
