Summer Field Trips

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.

Interested in setting up a weekly summer field trip for your organization or program?
