man, I didn't realize this story had gone national. It's a pretty ridiculous situation. I'm fairly familiar with the group and I've met some of its members. The various sustainable living/ aquaponics/ organic farmers/ similar groups tend to intermingle in the area, and my wife works for an organic co-op here in Dallas.

They're basically paranoid hippy/ prepper people who don't trust the government and aren't familiar with the shower concept. Their land looked like shit, they had tires and what most would consider trash (their treasure) all over the place, to be used for future projects. The neighbors didn't appreciate it, because they felt like their home values were being diminished.

And it's easy to hate people who are different. My guess is 1 or more neighbors told the city they were growing pot, just so that they'd get shut down.

I feel bad for the group. Their landowner is going to make them look terrible in this situation if she keeps talking. Obviously this was a major fuck up. Unfortuately, she's convinced it's because the government doesn't want people to know the secrets of sustainable living, and they're hiding the truth from the general public.
