People so hungry that they steal from a community garden

The Oliver Community Gardens have had a successful season, with beds fully rented, a new compost program, and increased donations to the Food Bank.

The rented and food bank beds are all tagged, but theft of produce has been a problem this summer. This is particularly disappointing for the students participating in the “Young Farmer” program. It is a “community garden”, but that does not mean help yourself.

    Why would anyone think it is just hungry people? There is rampant theft in our community.

    Publisher: Pride Alan – most people I know have pride. Maybe those that don’t steal from a community garden. To me it is more likely that someone hungry and without money is the culprit.
