AUGUSTA COUNTY, Va. -- A community farm in Augusta county called "Project Grows" will celebrate volunteers with a kick-off event on Thursday.

Thursday's event will include an afternoon of activities, including a volunteers orientation with tips on planting.

This year marks the project's second season, so it's still relatively new.

Jenna clarke, who is the Director of Marketing, said there are some new opportunies this year.

Those include a presence at the North Augusta Farmers Market, as well as new community volunteer nights.

"We really want to provide more opportunities for people to get involved, to come out to the farm, and get their hands dirty. So that's not something we really did last year we focused on our educational programming," said Clarke.

This year "Project Grows" will also have a new Community Supported Agriculture program, which will allow people who aren't volunteers at the farm to get local food.

The volunteer work event starts at 2 p.m. on Thursday at the farm in Verona and lasts until 8 p.m. is happy to provide a forum for commenting and discussion. Please respect and abide by the house rules:
