Education about the value of home grown foods can never start too soon. With this in mind, the Southeast Missouri Climate Protection Initiative, working with the Universalist Unitarian Fellowship of Cape Girardeau, is developing a garden that students at the Cape Area Family Resource Center (1202 S. Sprigg ) will cultivate to provide their families with home grown vegetables later this summer.

On Saturday morning, a series of beds were constructed that will be planted on Monday afternoon with onions, peppers, and lettuce. The planting is scheduled for 4:00 p.m. — when the afternoon Kids program starts. Later in the week, a row of tomatoes will be added to the garden.
