Improving Food Access
Project GROWS’ mission is to improve the health of children and youth in the central Shenandoah Valley through garden-based education and access to healthy food. Project GROWS operates and manages multiple farmers markets in the SAW Region as part of our food access programming. Our Farmers Markets seek to improve food security, individual and family health, and the overall local food economy by connecting local producers to the community and the community to nourishing foods. Our farmers markets prioritize:
Access to Quality Healthy Foods
Local and Sustainable Agriculture
