Calling All Savannah-Area Crop Mobbers
Hey there, mobbers. Hope you’re finally enjoying a respite from the heat of summer. As things cool down in the lowcountry, we’re going to be firing up plans to keep Crop Mob thriving in the Savannah area.
If this is your first time hearing about Crop Mob in Savannah, a little background is in order: we’re a group of volunteers committed to helping promote a clean food system by volunteering our labor on sustainable farms, school gardens, community gardens and more. Sustainable growing, by definition, requires more labor – and that’s where we come in. You don’t need to have a lick of experience to participate and it’s a great way to help local farmers, learn more about environmentally-friendly growing techniques, and get to know like-minded people while weeding beds of asparagus, harvesting squash or helping put up a hoophouse. We meet once every month or so on a Saturday or Sunday, work together for a few hours, and share a meal together. It’s that simple. And it’s wonderful in its simplicity.
As many of you know, the mobs thus far have been organized by some super stellar people. As it often happens, people’s lives are changing with moves and such, and we want to make sure Crop Mob Savannah grows. And what better way to ensure people get and stay involved than to have a time to celebrate and get to know one another better? That’s why we’re having a party!
Darren from Fiddlehead Pizza in Bluffton has very generously offered to open his restaurant up exclusively for Crop Mobbers on Sunday, November 4th from 3:00 to 5:00 PM. Come enjoy some appetizers, get to know about Crop Mob, and maybe discover a way you can help keep the group growing into next year.
While this is a completely free event, please register via Eventbrite so that we can maintain a headcount. Tell your friends and anyone you think might be interested. The more the merrier!
