I participated in my first ever Crop Mob on Saturday and it was such a fun experience.
Crop Mob takes connecting with your food a step further, giving you the opportunity to meet local farmers and get your hands dirty. This event was a little different in that we didn’t do any planting ourselves, but set up growing structures and prepared the soil for an edible playground garden at a local Montessori School. The students will then plant the gardens and make meals using the food they’ve grown!

Tunnel that will be covered with cucumber.

Mine & Sarah’s hut! It will be covered w/ edible vines and provide a hiding spot.

Crop mob is a group of young, landless, and wannabe farmers who come together to build and empower communities by working side by side. Any crop mobber can call a crop mob to do the kind of work it takes a community to do. We work together, share a meal, play, talk, and make music. This is the stuff that communities are made of.

  • No money is exchanged.
  • Work is done on small-scale, sustainable farms and gardens.
  • A meal is shared, often provided by the host.
  • This is not a charity. We crop mob for crop mobbers.
