WAYNESBORO, Va. (WVIR) -

Creative Works Farm in Waynesboro hosted an event on Sunday to encourage time away from cell phones and other electronic devices.

The farm hosted fun activities for families to enjoy while getting “unplugged” from technology as part of the Farming in the Valley Festival. 

“Games and stuff drive me nuts and I want [my kids] to grow up like I did and not be inside all the time,” said Andrea Bosserman. “I want them to be climbing trees in the woods and everything outside.”

Bosserman said her family doesn’t have technology. Her kids do not have cell phones and their household doesn’t have a computer. Reading is her kids’ primary activity, and they don’t have a problem with that.

“We get to do a lot of stuff,” said Bosserman's daughter, Biana. “We get to go experience new things with the family and paint pumpkins and not look at screens all day.”

Biana’s mother says she’s happy to see her kids having fun.

“We try to teach them all cultures. We want them to know everything about everybody,” Andrea Bosserman said. “Watching all my kids smile is just a joy for me.”

The day was also geared towards children’s education of agriculture.
