Do you have a garden? If so, you might want to register it with the Missouri Department of Agriculture's AgriMissouri program.
The program is being promoted through the 10,000 Garden Challenge. The challenge encourages individuals and groups to get involved with agriculture, promotes local produce and eating healthy foods. Additionally, those who register a garden can enter contests to win prizes, including gift certificates, tools and gardening supplies. More than 4,400 gardens from around the state have been registered so far, with 24 of those coming from Cape Girardeau residents.
There are many benefits to gardening, ranging from healthier eating to reduced stress and overall happiness. If you would like to learn more about starting a garden or read more about the challenge, go to www.agrimissouri.com/gardens.
