Hi, I'm Unknown #1

Forget flash mobs - welcome crop mobs!

Food, Love and Policy By Unknown #1 on November 30, 2010

Sustainability, mindfulness, real food, giving back ... all good things.


A new article by YES! Magazine takes a look at Crop Mobs ... city dwellers who hike off to local farms on the weekend and literally lend a helping hand, volunteering to pull weeds. The payoff? Aside from a delicious lunch provided by a renowned farm-to-table chef, the weed-pullers enjoy a deeper connection to their food and the land, and a beautiful respite from urban life. Breathe.


The Crop Mob profiled is located in Atlanta, but this could easily catch on around the country. In Milwaukee, we wouldn't have to go far to find an organic farmer happy to receive a little help. Heck, Growing Power is inside city limits! Seems like a great family project :)
