Losing Faith in Humanity

"Ironically, it happened on Earth Day," said Patrick Rump, executive director of Literary for Environmental Justice, a nonprofit that runs a restoration nursery in the Candlestick Point State Recreation Area. Over the weekend, vandals overturned as many as 5,000 plants, smashed garden tools and nursery tables, damaged community garden beds and even wrecked a toilet and sink. The damage is estimated at $15,000. "This week, we are trying to salvage what's salvageable," said Rump. Interested in helping them out? Email Patrick Rump at patrick.rump@lejyouth.org. [SF Appeal]
