Those who garden know that you plants are like your babies. Denise Morrison was heartbroken when her garden that was also medicine and sustenance to her, was decimated by Tulsa code enforcement officers last month. Some Sweet, sweet people have come to her aid and are helping her restore it.
“I feel like God sent down a billion angels,” Morrison said.
TULSA, Oklahoma -
We told you last month about a woman suing Tulsa’s code enforcement officers after they mowed down her entire garden.
Considering what gardeners have to fight against in this climate, it’s not surprising that they’re a bunch that sticks together.
And a bushel-full of them responded to Denise Morrison’s plight.
Several checks and seed packets were sent to me for Denise Morrison to help her replant her garden after the city mowed it down in August 2011.
Everything she grew, more than 100 plants, was edible.
Denise says she is overwhelmed by the support and says it has lifted her spirits tremendously, and made her realize many people share her passion for growing their own food.
