A crop mob is when a crew of volunteer farmers, farm workers, and eaters descend upon a farmer for a work blitz! Jobs can include weeding, greenhouse construction, harvesting, or any number of other jobs that can be done quickly and well by many willing hands. It's a way to get involved with a farm, help out your friends, and share time with fellow agrarians. See this New York Times Article
