Miami Shores Front Yard Veggie Garden Crusader Has Died

Miami Shores Front Yard Veggie Garden Crusader Has Died 

MIAMI (CBSMiami/AP) — A Miami Shores woman, who along with her husband, fought for six years for the right to grow vegetables in front of their home – and won – has died.

Hermine Ricketts was 63.

Ricketts died Saturday after a lengthy illness, the Institute for Justice confirmed. The libertarian public interest law firm represented Ricketts during her court battle.

The law allowing front-yard vegetable plots took effect on July 1st. The next day, Ricketts celebrated with a ceremonial replanting of veggies in front of her Miami Shores house.

“I am eager to get back and grow my healthy food,” Ricketts said at the time.”This was worth more than winning in the court of law. More people can benefit from this.”

Ricketts’ court battle begun when the Miami Shores Village Council amended its zoning code in 2013 to prohibit front-yard vegetable gardens. Village officials told her to uproot all her previously planted vegetables or face a $50 daily fine.

An appeals court backed the village, but then the Legislature stepped in to legalize the gardens.

Ricketts is survived by her husband, Tom Carroll, 60, who co-owns the Miami Shores home where they lived for the past 26 years. Ricketts and her husband ate the produce they grew from their garden. He was also heavily involved in his wife’s legal battles.

During the ceremonial replanting July 2, Ricketts sat on her rolling walker and watched as Carroll and her Institute for Justice attorney planted jalapenos, green bell peppers and other edibles that once would have violated local ordinances. She suffered from lung, heart and kidney trouble.

“A garden is a healthy place,” Ricketts said then. “You are on the earth, touching the soil, the grass. You get a new appreciation. It’s just wonderful.”
