The ongoing conflict between the Gold family and the Village of Oakcreek Association over a 200-square foot garden structure has reached its second year.
The backyard structure, called a hoop house, is made from PVC pipe and screen material, and is used for a shelter to grow organic vegetables.
“It all started on May of 2011 around 1 p.m — I was in the middle of grinding some leaves and sticks for the compost bins,” Craig Gold said. “I had a sign out in front of the house saying that I had vegetable starts. Bob Powers from VOCA walks to the back of the house and points to the hoop house and asks what it is, I tell him that it is a hoop house for growing vegetables. We then received a letter from Bob Powers with a laundry list of violations. Everything from irrigation supplies laying around to not being allowed to park in a gravel driveway.”
