CYPRESS...Youth members of the Club King After-School Program, operated by the Boys & Girls Club of Cypress, open up pumpkins and dig out all of the seeds for baking and eating.  These pumpkins were grown in the Club King garden; members of the program work in the garden weekly to grow their own produce and then participate in lessons detailing the nutritional benefit of incorporating fruits and vegetables in their diet.
