Mob the farm with Slow Food

You’ve heard of a flash mob. Now try a farm mob. Members of Slow Food Utah will travel to Blue Spring Farm in Tremonton to help get the organic and heirloom farm ready for the season. Participants should plan for a morning of "down and dirty farm work," followed by lunch. Remember to bring sunscreen, work clothes, sturdy shoes and water bottles.
