Cape Girardeau Community Garden Project

CAPE GIRARDEAU, MO (KFVS) -

Do you have a green thumb or would like to acquire one?

The Cape Girardeau Parks and Recreation Department, in conjunction with the Cape Girardeau County Public Health Department, began planting their Demonstration Garden  at the Shawnee Park Center, Saturday, April 24, 2015.  

Community Garden Coordinator Emily Scifers says classes are being held at the Shawnee Community Center in hopes of teaching local residents how to plant and harvest a variety of plants and vegetables in their own gardens or in the three  other larger production gardens in Cape Girardeau.

Funding for this project was provided through donations from the City of Cape Girardeau, the Cape Girardeau County Public Health Dept. and a HEAL  (Healthy Eating Active Living) grant.
