From NOFA-VT’s website:
Weed Dating is our play on the highly successful singles phenomenon called ‘Speed Dating.’ In Speed Dating, each participant spends a pre-determined amount of time with one potential mate, then moves on to the next. In Weed Dating, it’s much the same—except, instead of sipping on Cosmos while chatting with your partner, you’ll be weeding a bed of vegetables or doing other similar, light labor. This is a great opportunity to meet other farm and food enthusiasts, farmers, and NOFA-VT staff. We hope to not only ignite the flames of human companionship, but tighten the relationships between farmers and consumers as well.
Singles will receive a farm tour and refreshments, in addition to cultivating new connections. Farm experience is not required, but please come prepared for an hour’s work. Not looking for love? Friend-seekers are welcome as well.
