Project GROWS, a non-profit educational farm located in Augusta County, will host its first-ever Celebration to benefit Project GROWS on Friday, Nov. 20 at the Stonewall Jackson Hotel in Downtown Staunton. The event will be held from 6:00 p.m. until 10:00 p.m. and serves as an opportunity for the community to celebrate another exciting year connecting kids with healthy food and to support future food-access projects.
