Woman’s Survival Garden Seized and Destroyed by Authorities

Survival GardenA woman from Tulsa, Oklahoma is suing the city’s code enforcement teams after they illegally cut down her entire survival garden. Denise Morrison, who started the garden after becoming unemployed, had over 100 medicinal and edible plants in her front and back yard.

She told local Tulsa reporters that she started her garden after becoming unemployed as a way to feed herself and treat a variety of medical issues. Instead of relying on government handouts, this woman took matters into her own hands and decided to become self-sufficient. She filled her yard with things like fruit trees, berries, nut trees, and a wide variety of edible and medicinal herbs. She used these herbs to treat her diabetes, high-blood pressure, and arthritis.

All her hard work ended when the local code enforcement team showed up to her house and forcibly removed her entire survival garden. before after code enforcment teamMorrison says that she tried to explain how everything in her yard followed the local code enforcement rules. You see, she had problems with these people in the past and this time she was determined to do things by the book.

She obtained the local ordinances and followed every rule to the tee. She made sure that everything in her garden had a purpose, and that her garden looked its best at all times. Local ordinances stated that no plant could be over 12-inches tall unless they were being used for human consumption.

Morrison made sure every plant in her garden could be eaten, but that didn’t matter to the city. They could care less about what the law actually said; they were determined to take out her garden. “Every word out of their mouth was, ‘we don’t care’,” Morrison said.

Over 100 plant varieties were removed by the code enforcement team, leaving her with no way to feed or medicate herself. They took almost everything, including a number of her fruit and nut trees. She told local reporters in Tulsa, “I came back three days later, sat in my driveway, cried and left.”

Government Crack Down on Liberty

Uncle Sam Propaganda PosterWhile this case is extremely sad, it’s also becoming more and more common throughout the country. From “nuisance abatement teams” that have been forcing Off-Griders in California to hook back into the grid, to the heartbreaking story of Andrew Wordes who took his life after code enforcement teams seized his home, this country is making it harder and harder for self-reliant people to live on their own land.

While some dismiss these cases as localized issues, I believe they’re part of a larger movement to control anyone who dares to live a self-reliant lifestyle. I think evidence of this can be seen in the federal government’s attempts to regulate small farms out of existence, their use of the EPA to seize private land, the formation of the Department of Homeland Security’s Green Police Force, their attempts to seize control of the Great Lakes, oceans, and waterways, and their use of organizations like The National League of Cities to take control of local governments.

The Ultimate Situational Survival Guide


  1. AGENDA 21………Google it…….mass depopulation plan from the UN.

    Get USA out of the UN!!!!


  2. Whomever said it was NOT Liberals, NOR Obama…in this issue….has it all dead wrong.
    In late 2010, Obama signed into Law…Bill S-510….which bans anyone from growing their own garden. Look it up…..
    Do your homework before you blindly defend Liberals….
    And, remember this….FASCISM ALWAYS COMES FROM THE LEFT (historically proven)

  3. It is not liberals or democrats or republicans that destroyed that garden, it was an ordinance that citizens water to keep grams and animals stayed out of the city to keep city beautiful. I would suggest to you it was because of front garden and size of the rear. Check where you live, the city, village, hmo’s and see their restrictions. Remember it was just a few f the elitists with money that did it. Power is in the people when they chose t exercise it.

  4. Here we go with the liberal versus conservative BS that keeps people fighting against the wrong people. If you cheer for one team over the other in that argument, than you are dumb AF, part of the problem and are deserving of what is going on.

  5. They are shit-scared that plebs will start to realize that power is invested in the individual, and when millions of decent individuals group together, even a bigger group of immoral, selfish individuals cannot beat them. They don’t want any community cohesion because this could lead to their demise!!

  6. I can tell you I am mad that I even clicked on the link to a site that does nothing but scare people!! Instead of taking this opportunity to push people to get involved so this does not happen any more you just stoked ‘fires’….not counting your headlines are all on terror….what a horrible way to live..in fear!

  7. in the modern world, when government at the behest of big corporations becomes too controlling, it isn’t liberal or conservative. it’s fascist. In reality, there is no difference between Establishment Republicans and Establishment Democrats. Both support Oligopolies, Big Business, Big Finance, Big Pharma, Big Media, Big Military, Regime Change, War for the sake of profits, and are anti-labor, anti-unions, anti-welfare, anti-education, anti-elderly, anti-poor, anti-sick, and pro-prisons for minorities. They differ only about abortions, gays, prayers, and government help for churches. It started in full under the Clintons when they became the Republican Wing of the Democratic Party. And under Reagan who turned this country far right with Reaganomics and Ultra Free Trade. The only way out is to adopt Nordic Values and fight both parties by joining in the Progressive Movement. In those countries they work 36 to 40 hour weeks, get 5 weeks paid vacations, plus national holidays, plus maternity and paternity leave, plus free education, plus almost free health care, plus early retirement, and they live longer by 5 years and live happier lives. No more poverty for them. It can be done. It has to be fought for against the top 1%. We need government to balance labor and business to uphold clean water, clean air, community rights, and social justice. The government is now owned by the Big Wealthy Players which means the other 90% are getting hurt every day. It’s Reaganomics. It’s Outsourcing to China. It’s poor distribution of goods and services. It’s lack of government funded infrastructure. Because none of those things make the wealthy richer. But they do make everyone else poorer.

  8. 2 things really stand out from the comments
    first, people need to figure out what Liberal means .
    and understand the reason we have fake Liberals .
    second, the notion Liberals are for bigger government .
    the conservative mantra about smaller government . is actually smaller Federal government . empowering 50 larger state governments . is about opening more avenues for corruption , less oversight.
    expanding the military , border patrol. while adding 2 new agencies . homeland security . and the TSA is bigger government . we used to have the Army Corps of Engineers administering our lakes , rivers . now we have brand new agencies designed for maximizing the exploitation of our public resources . all the while the sheep are focused on illegal immigration , abortion , gun control . the real agenda has been to cut taxes on the wealthy , and increase sales taxes , usery fees on the poor . licenses , fees , fines , permits , passes , tolls, etc. all cost more , more every year. these increases don’t impact the wealthy at all . while crippling the middle class , killing the poor . now we sit , call each other names . belittle our allies . while the wealthy control our government . our media . our healthcare , our education . and our future …

  9. Trump’s an idiot. Obama was no better. But you folks treat it like a football game, choosing sides & a touting your team’s the best, smh. You guys forget that no matter what ‘team’ you support, be it Liberal or conservative, the benefits all trickle up, not down to you. Their 2 sides of the same coin.

  10. MrBenz7, I’m not going to defend I’llBomba or the likes of Diane Fineswine, because they are corporate lap dogs too.

    That said, you should have done 5 seconds of research before you started blaming Democrats for this miscarriage of justice and common sense. It turns out, Tulsa, Oklahoma is run by a Repubican:

    George Theron Bynum attended Cascia Hall Preparatory School in Tulsa, Oklahoma,[1] and Villanova University. He served as student body president in his senior year at Villanova and founded a school club for Republicans.[2]

  11. “Is the Self-Reliant Lifestyle Now a Crime in America?”

    Under Obama, for sure — everyone must surrender to the government; under Trump, time will tell.

  12. Rofl. I might actually live to see the day all of you idiots who areblaming one side or another wake up, and realize there is no side. Right and left wing of the same damn bird with one head and body. Well who am i kidding i will likely be long dead before any of you actually start using that thing between your ears to think for yourselves, and actually start paying attention to simple facts.

  13. This is so disheartening. The time and effort it takes to put this type of thing together is massive. To have it destroyed like this is shameful and very disturbing.

  14. How can they legally go on her property and do this. What happened to Trespassing laws? Rights of the citizen? This should not be the last word. Tulsa needs to make this women whole, send workers to replace and even make the garden better! STAY OUT OF OUR LIVES! Geez I thought Illinois was bad, this I can’t believe.

  15. Are you guys for real? This originally was posted in 2012. Obama was in control then. Think about it would you? Quit mudslinging and grow up. Take responsibility for what you do or don’t do and shut up about the rest.

  16. So Tulsa is becomming a Communist city like the cities on the West coast? I bet they wouldn’t do this if the person is a Libtard like them !!
