(Before It's News)

NopeMetric Giles got tired of looking at the trash-strewn vacant lot next door to the offices of the Community Stabilization Project where he worked in St. Paul, Minnesota. The lot was once the site of a church building that was torn down for code violations. So with permission of that church, which claims to still own the lot, he and some others who work in the neighborhood cleaned it up and planted a garden. But the state claims the lot had been forfeited to it years ago for back taxes and Ramsey County is its legal steward. And county officials have now placed “no trespassing” signs on the lot and ordered Giles to remove the garden.
