Vandals hit garden again

The community graden at Northeast Community Center has been vandalized. Plants were pulled up and destroyed, and the water was left running in an effort to wash out the garden beds.
Jean Farmer, executive director of Northeast Community center, said this in an e-mail:
“(vandals) generally caused a lot of grief for those that have put their limited funds, energy and hearts into growing the gardens. They pay for their space and their seeds/plants and use the food to sustain themselves. They bother no one and in several years have held a harvest festival hoping to engage the community around them. I hope there are some neighbors out there who will help figure out how to stop such non-productive acts.”
Please call Crime Check at (509) 456-2233 if you know who's responsible for ruining part of this summer's harvest.

About this blog

Welcome to the Hillyard neighborhood blog. My name is Pia Hallenberg and I’ve worked as a journalist in Spokane since the fall of 1998; for the last six years I've worked for The Spokesman-Review.

In April, I started a neighborhood blog on South Perry Street (where I live). When it came time to expand the blog activity, Hillyard was an easy pick: There is so much going on in this neighborhood in terms of new businesses and street improvements, festivals and new construction - and there is a strong sense of neighborhood history and pride. I'm looking forward to highlighting all of that on this blog.
