Proposal would let homeowners sell veggies they grow
DENVER -- Denver City Councilor Robin Kniech wants to amend city zoning laws to allow for home grown fruits and vegetables to be sold by growers either at their homes or local farmer’s markets. “We know there are food deserts in Denver -- areas where there are no grocery stores or access to fresh produce,” said Kniech. “This is why we need to allow residents to sell produce they might normally throw away at harvest time, so others in the neighborhood can eat healthy.”
