Crop Mob, Sunday, Carrboro

March 16, 2010 at 6:43 pm Leave a comment

If you’ve been curious about the now famous Crop Mob and Carrboro’s amazing urban ag scene, here’s an opportunity to get involved in both. Crop Mob will work at several Carrboro garden locations this Sunday March 21 from 12 noon  until 5 p.m., followed by a dinner.  Show up  and work hard and you are sure to pick up some new skills, eat good grub, and make new friends. And you’ll even see where some of the “mobsters” live and garden.

“We’ll be mini-mobbing Carrboro,” says Andrea in the Crop Mob Facebook invitation, “3 house gardens, 1 community garden and 1 co-op garden. All of these locations, in addition to being the home-base gardens of crop mobbers, are on the map for Carrboro Greenspace’s 3rd Annual Urban Farm tour (June 12th) and we are hoping this mob will spur the creation of an urban crop mob in Carrboro/Chapel Hill.” That would be sweet.

Here are the details—–

What: there will be garden expansion, renewal, bed creation, tomato transplanting, cob & cedar greenhouse construction, chicken coop building and plenty of weeding.

What to bring (if you have): digging forks, shovels, trowels, hand weeders, wheelbarrows, a spoon & bowl or plate. (Don’t forget to label your tools.)

Where: come to one of 3 main locations; bike or carpool if possible:
* Carrboro Community Garden
* The BOG Co-op (102 Crest St) will be the base for 1 other home
* 201 Lindsey St will be the base for 2 other homes (and will also be the final destination for all mobbers for the meal)
See map for directions, parking & details:

Feel free to forward this to anyone who might be interested.

Please RSVP to so they can plan the food.
