CAPE MAY — On Tuesday, April 22, the Nature Center of Cape May will celebrate Earth Day with three speakers to share their ideas of how people can make a positive impact on the planet, environment and on their communities.
Stacey Davis will discuss “Building Community through CSA.” Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is a direct link between farmer and consumer.
