The day before Field of Greens, the Crop Mob will be descending on the Whippoorwill Hollow Farm to help prepare for the Field of Greens festival. Tasks will include starting a memorial garden for Hilda Byrd, general farm cleanup and some typical small chores. Lunch will be provided.
Crop Mob attendees are welcome to hang around after lunch to walk the farm's trails, visit the animals, check out the fruit trees and see what's growing in the fields.
We are capping this one at 25 people so make sure to register early!
