Crop Mob: River Farm Fall Planting
Thursday, Sept. 26, Friday, Sept. 27, & Saturday, Sept. 28
Fall is here at Green Gate Farms! Our River Farm is going through a difficult time, we have had a plague of grasshoppers and your help is needed to ensure that what we have planted (and replanted) survives.
What: A Crop Mob gives folks a chance to join in the help and harvest on sustainable area farms, like the fall olive harvest we arranged at nearby CaraCara farm. This means you get to visit a farm and lend a hand when it’s most needed. Every one leaves with food as available. No experience necessary. Youth 15 years and older welcome; parents assume all responsibility for the supervision and safety of their children. Please leave pets at home.
When: Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, 8:45 meeting at Green Gate Farms, or 9:30 meeting at the River Farm.Where: Meet at Green Gate Farms, 8310 Canoga Ave., Austin 78724 to caravan to the River Farm. Volunteers are welcome to work all day; however, some vans will return to Green Gate Farms by noon. If you live near Bastrop, you can meet us at the River Farm. Click here for directions.
How: Wear sturdy shoes that cover your feet, long pants, hat, and bring gloves: it can be prickly out there! Make sure to bring your own ice water, sunscreen, and snack/food. Covered toes required.
