SUMMER CAMPS 2021
Project GROWS and the Blue Ridge Children’s Museum are partnering again this year to bring you four day-long, standalone summer workshops on 2nd and 4th Fridays of June and July, called Little GROWers Mini Camps! These workshops will embrace the spirit of Little GROWers and will get students outside digging in the dirt with us as we harvest veggies and make crafts, go on scavenger hunts and pasture walks, and explore the farm together!
Spots are limited to 12 students per day, so register as soon as you can! Registration opens on Tuesday, April 27th. TO REGISTER, CLICK HERE!

Summer Field Trip Series
During June and July, Project GROWS partners with organizations like the Boys and Girls Club of Waynesboro, Staunton, and Augusta County and the Summer Learning Loss Prevention Program (a partnership between the Staunton-Augusta Family YMCA and Staunton City Schools), to host youth on the farm for weekly field trips over an eight-week period.
By making regular visits to the farm during the height of the growing season, students experience the farm at full production, plant their own garden plot and see it through until harvest, learn about topics like pollinators and compost, participate in scavenger hunts and gardening tasks, and try their hands at cooking and preparing a wide variety of produce.
Every plant is our teacher.
Our textbook the soil.
