Crop Mob 10/10/10: Spence Farms, IL

Marty and his Crop Mob visitors

On October 10th, my mom and I headed off to Livingston County in Illinois for our first Crop Mob event. The idea is that city people itching to be connected to their local farmers, volunteer for a day on a nearby farm.

Marty and Kris own and run their organic, sustainable farm with great passion and ambition. They supply restaurant chefs in Chicago and head up many community education initiatives. I would volunteer again in a heartbeat. The day was sunny and 80 degrees, the work was novel and the company was fun.

http://www.350.org hosted the event to focus on climate change. I joined the group through a Slow Food Chicago newsletter.
