Crop Mob strikes again

February 20, 2010 at 1:10 am Leave a comment

Within hours of our posting, “Growing Rice in Moncure NC?”, Rob Jones of Crop Mob contacted Jason and Haruka and offered to stage a “mob” work day at Edible Earthscapes to help them expand the rice paddy: Sunday Feb. 28 from 12 noon to 5 p.m, followed by dinner. 

Jason and Haruka will lead a demonstration at the start so participants can learn more about what it takes to create the perfect environment for rice.  Participants can help by working on the paddy, or on the roofing of the intern housing, or cooking up sustainable grub for hungry “mobsters.”

Come prepared to work, learn and enjoy. Bring your rubber boots (expect mud) and tools if possible, such as: shovel, trenching shovel, rake, pickaxe, long level, wheelbarrow. Please RSVP to info@cropmob.org so they can plan enough food.

Crop Mob is an informal group of farmers, farm hands, interns and advocates who help each other with big projects.  The idea is to exchange labor and ideas, learn,make new friends and strenghten our local sustainable farm community.

Here’s a slideshow Logan Mock-Bunting created from the mob last March at Edible Earthscapes.  Listen to Sam and Kristin talk about why they are involved in Crop Mob, on WUNC Public Radio “State of Things.”

Edible Earthscapes is located at 4803 Moncure-Pittsboro Rd., Moncure, NC 27559 (look for the yellow sign).
