Students in Etobicoke were angry to find that flowers from their school garden have been stolen.
As part of a “green project,” parents and students planned to maintain a garden of flowers, fruits and vegetables at Second Street Junior Middle School throughout the summer.
But when students went to water the plants, they were gone.
“I’m very, very upset. Give them back right now,” one young student said.
The students raised $500 to create the garden.
According to parents, the most expensive flowers in the garden were targeted by the thieves.
“I was really upset that someone would come steal from a children’s garden,” one parent said.
A sign was put up after the theft, calling out the thieves and asking for the flowers to be returned.
The fruits and vegetables that grow in the garden are destined for a nearby food bank.
