Join the Mob, Pick a Mob

Only a few weeks back, we were encouraging you to crop mob with the Green City Market Junior Board at Radical Root Farm in Grayslake.  If our blog enticements did not do it, Kyle Schott’s report of the day on the farm should have done the trick.  Now, our friends at the GCMJunior Board have scheduled another mob activity.  Join them tomorrow, September 25 at Graynor Farm in Three Oaks Michigan.  Now, you were supposed to respond by yesterday, September 22, but we got behind in our Beeting; we bet a gentle email to will still get you to the farm.

We have a little more notice for another crop mob; this one the second (nay annual?) crop mob organized by Tom Leavitt and White Oak Gourmet at Spence Farm.  If you know anything about local farms, you know that Spence holds a unique place with their attention to traditions and specialization in heritage products.  For instance, last year, at the crop mob, we reaped sorghum, a popcorn like grass not much grown around here anymore.  We also heard the story of Spence Farm’s rescue of the rare Iroquois corn.  You can read more about our rewarding day last year here.    This year’s Spence Farm crop mob is October 16.  You need to register and purchase tickets here.  Hope you join us.
