Memphis Teacher/Gardener Wins!

Memphis2
Adam Guerrero, the Memphis teacher with an embattled veg garden, has won!  To quote Roger Doiron's Kitchen Gardeners International newsletter:

Thousands of petition signatures, facebook likes and emails later, I'm thrilled to report that Adam gets to keep his front yard garden. And it gets even better because the city of Memphis was so impressed by the support Adam and his garden received that it's going to help him locate a lot in his neighborhood for a new community garden.
