Local Master Gardeners and community volunteers plan and maintain a Demonstration Garden at Animal Acres park on Brookside Blvd in Lake Forest Park.

Unfortunately, this Demonstration Garden was victim of a theft this past week.

Soon after planting, someone stole 15 plants from the garden.

This Demonstration Garden donates all the food grown to the Prince of Peace Lutheran Church to support its food program, POPY'S Cafe, where they feed the needy in our community.

The loss of 15 plants is significant, as that would have contributed a lot of food to the church.

Those of us who take care of the garden are asking our friends and neighbors in the community to support our efforts and help keep an eye on the garden. We hope that this was an isolated incident. Please help us in making this project a success.
