Garden on city land destroyed by ATV driver

ISHPEMING — The garden located on city property just off of Washington Street in Ishpeming was destroyed by an ATV driver Thursday night, according to witnesses.

At approximately 9:45 p.m., a red ATV was seen driving through the garden, destroying special corn and soybean plants. The garden has been kept up by Dan Perkins and other community members for the last 10 years.

Earlier this week, Perkins was told by the Ishpeming City Council to cease growing vegetables and other plants on that property at the end of the year. The Ishpeming Police Department showed up to assess the scene just after 10:30 p.m.

ABC 10 will have much more on this story Friday at 5:30 p.m. on ABC 10 News Now.
