Here are some ways to make your community crop mob a prosperous one:
1. Approach people you know who have a strong work ethic. These people follow through on their commitments to the group.
2. Invite non-judgmental, compassionate people. Remember, not everyone will be feeling 100 percent on every day of the mob, so it’s important to gather an understanding group of people who won’t “count” individual accomplishments.
3. Invite folks with a positive disposition and a sense of humility.
4. Assure that all members prioritize the work days and take them seriously.
5. Agree ahead of time about how you will handle a missed crop mob.
6. Let go of perfection and be flexible.
7. Speak up! Be sure to let the group hear your needs.
8. Plan your tasks and gather all needed materials the week before hosting.
9. Make simple, one-pot meals for your group dinners.
