Spreading our Crop Mob Branches
We’ve got some pretty exciting news. As lots of you know, the Georgia Organics Conference will be taking place in Savannah March 11th & 12th. Not only will Crop Mob have a table in the expo, but we’ll also be having a mob at Downtown Savannah’s Avondale Farm. Sound familiar? Avondale Farm is Chef Matt Roher’s farm, and Chef Matt is none other than the executive chef at Savannah’s well-loved farm-to-table restaurant Cha-Bella. In fact, Chef Matt will be leading the charge to feed over 1,000 excited conference-goers at the legendary Farmer’s Feast.
You might be thinking, “Wow, I’ve traveled for a mob before, but Savannah’s really pushing it!” Well, that brings us to our most exciting news yet. We’re hoping to get as many Savannah locals involved in this mob as possible in the hopes of starting a Savannah-based branch of Crop Mob. As evidenced by the farm tours being offered for the conference, Savannah has a growing sustainable farming community, and every thriving farm community could do with some eager volunteers!
We’d love to eventually see clusters of Crop Mob all over Georgia so that people can help without having to travel too far — and so that Georgia can reclaim its agricultural roots in a sustainable way. So if you’ve got friends in Savannah, please encourage them to get involved and pass this news on to them. And if you’re planning to attend the conference, we’d love to see you at Avondale Farm on Sunday the 13th after the conference. Please keep in mind, though, that our goal is provide Savannah folks with a Crop Mob experience, so registration for Atlantans will begin on March 3rd.
Do you think we can grow Crop Mob Atlanta into Crop Mob Georgia? With our mobbers’ help, I have no doubt we can. And don’t worry, there will be another in-town Atlanta mob at the end of March — we’d never leave you high and dry!
See some of you this Saturday at Patchwork City Farms and we’ll post back with a full report on the reception of Crop Mob in Savannah soon!
