A team of cycling bandits were recently spotted in our garden swiping vegetables. It appears to be a random act of healthy eating. They reportedly stole red peppers, tomatoes, and squash.

What you can do to deter garden crime…

  • Introduce yourself to possible bandits. Approach with caution; bandits may be armed with harvesting shears and vegetable recipes.
  • Tell them about our website: www.dunwoodygarden.org where they can find membership and contact information.
  • Direct them to the thieves’ beds near the front of the garden where they are welcome to run amok.
  • Keep your plot well cared for. The Untended Garden Theory of Crime parallels the Broken Window Theory of Crime.
  • Personalize your plot. Go right ahead: get nuts with the painted signs and water gnomes! And have fun releasing your inner artist.
