Welcoming in Autumn at Burnell Farm
Well, it’s about that time again. Our sore muscles are all limbered up and our sunburns have faded, and that can only mean one thing: time for another mob! This month we’re heading to Burnell Farm in Royston, GA to do a variety of fun things. For those of you who helped out at Tewksbury, you can experience hoophouse construction from beginning to end, since we’ll be helping Tammy finish up her hoophouses as well as do some weeding, seeding and pulling out fence line. I don’t *think* we’ll be needing any special tools or equipment, but you can always feel free to throw what you’ve got in terms of shovels and such in your trunk just in case! Be sure to remember gloves, water, sunscreen, bugspray, boots, and plates and utensils for lunch! (We haven’t confirmed yet, but are pretty sure we’ll be getting a Miller Union visit. Get excited!)
This will be a really great mob! Tammy and her husband moved to Atlanta from Iowa a year ago after losing everything in a flood and have worked hard to establish their beautiful farm. Let’s go help them get ready for a lovely Georgia autumn on the 19th! We’ll get started around 9 AM and will send out another update before then with reminders, carpool info, any more specific directions we get, etc. We’ve been asked to cap this mob at 50, but be sure to put your name on the waiting list if it fills up. Additionally, we’re most likely having two mobs (and maybe an additional mini-mob?) in October, so there are lots of opportunities to help and get dirty on the horizon!
See you there!
