There's a small town named Owen Sound, about 3 hours north of where I live. Usually, news about things going on there don't really make it down here, but this news item caught my eye. A community garden, behind a church, no less, was robbed of its prized vegetables last week. Some of the items included a 200 pound pumpkin, some squash and watermelon. To add insult to injury, the garden has been managed by the Canadian Mental Health Association. The garden has been used as a tool to help people with mental health disorders gain independence, self-confidence, and employable skills. They have been tending it since 2008 and watching this year's crop grow since May.
To move a 200 pound pumpkin is not a spur of the moment prank, and must have been planned well in advance. To do this to anyone is pretty low, let alone to a community project. If you happen to see someone trying to pawn off a giant pumpkin, or a load of pumpkin pies Crime Stoppers is 1-800-222-8477, and the local Owen Sound Police is 519-376-1234.
Let me know what you think should happen to the people who did this.
