HANDS-ON LEARNING WORKSHOPS (aka “Crop Mobs”)
Like an old-fashioned barn-raising, these workshops provide an opportunity to join together and support a fellow grower while learning valuable skills from experienced farmers. We will engage in fun, hands-on, educational farming tasks while helping a grower complete a large project.
