Dunwoody Community Garden gets a little help from the business community of Costco and Home Depot in order to rebuild.

The 11Alive Help Desk teamed up with Home Depot, who moved quickly to send "Team Home Depot" volunteers to assist in plantings and provide seedling flats. Costco, located just a few miles from Brook Run Park, stepped right up to replace all of the produce lost in the vandalism, so the Food Pantry would not lose a beat in its donations.

The Garden has teamed up with the City of Dunwoody to offer a $1,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of the vandals who caused the damage.  If you have any information about this case, please contact the Dunwoody Police Department at 678.382.6919. You may also leave anonymous tips via SUBMIT A CRIME TIP,, or text via TIPSOFT program, Each of these methods is confidential, encrypted, and completely anonymous.

Upon Discovering My Entire Solution to the Attainment of Immortality Erased from the Blackboard Except the Word 'Save'

If you have seen the snow
somewhere slowly fall
on a bicycle,
then you understand
all beauty will be lost
and that even the loss
can be beautiful.
And if you have looked
at a winter garden
and seen not a winter garden
but a meditation on shape,
then you know why
this season is not
known for its words,
the cold too much
about the slowing of matter,
not enough about the making of it.
So you are blessed
to forget this way:
a jump rope in the ice melt,
a mitten that has lost its hand,
a sun that shines
as if it doesn't mean it.
And if in another season
you see a beautiful woman
use her bare hands
to smooth wrinkles
from her expensive dress
for the sake of dignity,
but in so doing trace
the outlines of her thighs,
then you will remember
surprise assumes a space
that has first been forgotten,
especially here, where we
rarely speak of it,
where we walk out onto the roofs
of frozen lakes
simply because we're stunned
we really can.
