Crop Mob

Crop Mob is a group of volunteers who come together to help sustainable farmers in the community. It’s not charity, more like an old fashioned barn raising. All the farmers involved are also crop mob volunteers for other people’s projects.

“It's invigorating for us as farmers to see people come out and look at the farm with new eyes,” Cory Mosser said, “and that makes it exciting for us.”

Cory also thinks that it’s good for people to appreciate where their food comes from. “It connects the dots for people to go out and physically work on a farm – even if it’s only for a couple of hours.”
