The New York Times Magazine had a story on Sunday about Crop Mobs down in North Carolina. The idea is that volunteer ‘pop up farmers’ can show up at a farm to slave away for a day or afternoon, doing all that labor intensive work that small farms have so much of.
I know the Greenfield Garden Club has Weed Mobs before their annual garden tour, but I wonder if any local farms need a Crop Mob? I’ll bet there are farmer wannabees around. An afternoon of Crop Mobbing might be just the education they need. Farming aside, “Anywhere there is dirt, community will grow.”
