Wrecking Bar Recollections
Hey Mobbers! We were so glad to see some of your smiling faces at Wrecking Bar on Sunday. It was a drizzly day, but we bested the weather with warmth, beer, merriment, darts, corndogs, and great conversation. We talked about a bunch of great stuff and had the pleasure of lots of new faces who were there to learn about Crop Mob for the first time! Can’t wait to see all of you, old and new, at a mob soon (the first one on the schedule is an overnight March 2 & 3, so make some room on your calendar).
We discussed a handful of things, but chief among them was ways for mobbers to be more instrumental in running Crop Mob! Here’s what we’re thinking: those of you who would like to be more involved and have a mob or two under your belt, let us know if you’d like to “run a mob” one month. We’ll assign you a farm (based on what farmer has reached out to us for that month) and help coordinate food, but we need volunteers to help run things at the mob, help the farmer, organize folks, etc. It’s really pretty simple, and a great way to get more folks involved. If you think you might be interested, shoot us an email letting us know what month you might be interested in (or just that you’re available, if you’re more or less flexible) and we’ll start getting this thing run by the people who make it happen – YOU!
We also discussed that in addition to periodic smaller mobs, we will also post when farmers need ongoing help both in our emails as well as on Facebook. So be sure to check out our Facebook page often to keep up with the latest and find a time to volunteer on your own or bring a few friends along. We also hope to work on a map showing where we’ve mobbed as well as a better way to organize carpooling – though that might tie into the whole checking our Facebook page part!
All in all it was a really great day! Thanks so much to everyone for coming out and a huge thank you to Chef Terry and the wonderful folks at Wrecking Bar Brewpub for treating us so well. We’ll have to do it more often!
Current Volunteer Opportunities:
The folks from Enota Mountain Retreat have a beautiful 4 acre growing space and need help. While we’ll probably have a huge overnight mob there later in the year, they’re needing some folks to volunteer this upcoming weekend and are happy to put you up and feed you for your hard work. It’s a pretty sweet way to enjoy a mountain getaway – esp in this cooler weather. If you’re interested, please contact Haley Hebert at firstname.lastname@example.org.
