Kids in Augusta County are getting a different type of hands-on experience to learn about produce and money.

The Boys and Girls Club of Waynesboro, Staunton and Augusta County partnered with Project Grows, allowing the kids to run their own youth farm.

"They're learning about the vegetables," said Jenna Piersol of Project Grows. "They're also kind of honing their leadership skills. So they're doing some entrepreneurship, they're learning about how markets work and they're also having a lot of fun. So that's a win, win for us."

The farm stand will be at the Boys and Girls Club in Waynesboro every Wednesday from 5 to 6 p.m. until the end of August.
