The dispute about Urban Food Streets at Buderim blew up when I was first planting my verge. There have been several major public disputes since.
Here is a quick guide on how to avoid a dispute.
- Find your council policy and follow it without question
- Don’t grow food
- Don’t grow spiky, poisonous or weedy plants
- Don’t use it to start a business (even if you don’t make any money)
- Do the initial transformation slowly and let people get used to it
