Exciting News & Ways To Fill Your Free Time
Hey mobbers! Just wanted to check in and let y’all know about something fun as well as put out some farmer requests for help. First, the fun stuff:
Southern Living has reached out to us asking to do a piece on Crop Mob in an effort to feature more content about local foods, sustainable ag, etc. We’re excited that they’ll be joining us at the Oct. 1st Whippoorwill Hollow Farms mob. Since the piece won’t come out until the May issue, we might have to pose with an out of season veggie or two or all get close to each other’s sweaty selves for a group shot, but I know mobbers can go with the flow. We still have some spots open for that mob, so join us! We’re working on a fun plan for food…we promise something delicious…
But, until then, we’ve got a great mob planned for Sept. 24th at Bella Cucina’s warehouse; we’ll get details about that event to those of you who are signed up in about a week. Want to help outside of these mobs? We’ve had a few farmers reach out to us for individual volunteers. If you find yourself eager to play in the dirt on a gorgeous September day, just contact the farmers below to set up a time to stop by and help:
- Whipporwill Hollow Farms: Even though we’re going to help Andy out on Oct 1st, he needs a few hands to help him get the plastic up on his hoophouse with a quickness. This would be a great opportunity for some of our Athens mobbers, as the farm is located in Walnut Grove, east of Atlanta. Just give Andy Byrd a call at 770.601.0110
- Patchwork City Farms: Many of you might remember Cecilia from when we mobbed PCF – and that she was pregnant at the time. Well, it’s been several months and – as those things go – we’re about to have a new mini-mobber on our hands. And that means PCF needs a few hands to fill the gap until we find garden tools small enough for the newest little farmer. PCF is located in West End. Interested? Email email@example.com to set something up.
- Oakleaf Mennonite Farm: Live in or near East Atlanta? Why not stop by Oakleaf, meet the new farm managers and help out for an hour or two when it fits your schedule? Email firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a time.
