There Goes A Crop Mob

It’s called crop mobbing. Think of it as a Digital Age barn-raising, or Facebook enabled farming.

Crop Mobs are a growing contingent of farmers, food activists, office workers, the agri-curious and the unemployed who choose a small farm somewhere around the Piedmont, goes out to the site and does a lot of work in a short amount of time.

They meet about once a month to broaden their knowledge about gardening and sustainable agriculture, while putting a serious dent in the farmer’s to-do list.

This can be extremely helpful to a local small farmer trying to make a living on their next harvest. It’s also useful for communities that want to start a garden, but doesn’t know where to start. It’s a community building exercise that everyone benefits from.

Organizer Trace Ramsey, 35 explained in the group’s blog at, “We farm because we want to, not because we need to. At some time or another, we were infected with a desire to give and take from the dirt.”

Beginners and those wanting to learn more about sustainable agriculture are gladly welcomed. Contact Crop Mob Piedmont on Facebook or though The Gardens @ Island Ford to see how you can get involved. 

Crop Mob Piedmont is currently looking for volunteers with agricultural experience in the Piedmont region, so that the Crop Mob will have a knowledge base to learn from.  Those volunteers would be in charge of such duties as site prep, recruitment, tool acquiring, outreach, and anything else we can think of.

So, if you would like to share some good knowledge, good food, good music, and good works contact Crop Mob Piedmont through The Gardens @ Island Ford.

Please look through your contact list and spread the word around the Piedmont.
