SAN JOSE -- A local urban farm is asking for help replacing thousands of dollars' worth of equipment that was stolen from its community garden last week.
Veggielution associate director Mark Medeiros emailed those who use the Emma Prusch Farm Park garden Saturday that sometime last week, someone broke through the garden's fence and stole about $5,000 worth of equipment including rototillers, a chipper, a jack and other tractor repair equipment, as well as smaller items.
Medeiros said the urban farm does not have video cameras, so no suspect description was available.
The group is hoping to raise money to not only replace the stolen farm equipment but to buy security cameras, signs and locks that will help prevent potential future thefts.
Donations to Veggielution can be sent to 647 S. King Rd., San Jose, CA 95116.
