STAUNTON, Va. (WHSV)-- Helping hands were busy in the garden, joined by several members of city council, weeding, and putting down mulch.
The farm has grown 500 pounds of produce already this year. A lot of that went to the VSDB cafeteria.Now they're kicking off a summer season that will keep them busy working with students at VSDB's summer camps.

"There's always work to be done on the farm, and so it's great to have community members help out. They're a huge help and we have a lot of vegetables just coming on line: tomatoes are almost ripe, zucchini, potatoes, lots of really good things to eat in the garden," said Trevor Piersol, project manager of the garden.

If you'd like to help out the farm is going to host community work days every Tuesday during the summer from 4 to 7 p.m.. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:

Keep it clean, keep it civil, keep it truthful, stay on topic, be responsible, no links, share your knowledge, and please suggest removal of comments that violate these standards.
