VERONA -- A group called Project Grows wants to help neighbors eat healthy foods.
Garden coordinators have launched what's called a community supported agriculture initiative. That means neighbors will be able to buy food straight from the garden.
In the past, the garden has grown pumpkins, lettuce, basil and other vegetables. A director with the garden said the goal is to help people form healthy habits.
“It's really important for them to learn about nutrition and making healthy choices every day. Getting them out to this beautiful farm to do that, we see it as a huge positive for the community,” said Jenna Clarke with Project Grows.
Project Grows has already worked with food pantries in the Valley and the Boys and Girls Club in Waynesboro. You can find out how to sign up on this website: www.projectgrows.org/
