‘Project Grows’ puts down roots in Augusta County

Project GrowsBy Lynn R. Mitchell

Located on Berry Farm Road in Augusta County, I was out that way earlier this week and snapped this picture of the sign. Project GROWS is a community farm where children and youth grow, eat, and enjoy. Young members of the community are taught about healthy living through many hands-on experiences, growing food from soil to seed to harvest. They find this same food in their meals and have the opportunity to prepare it together. They are also taught why fresh food is healthy and helped in developing business skills to market and sell it, while local growers share with them their approach to producing healthy food. Youth bring family and friends to farm events and celebrations where participants take pride in what they accomplish and enjoy what hard work can produce.

Volunteers are encouraged to share their talents and skills with Project Grows. See their website, Project Grows, for more details and information.
