2019 Mobile Farm Workforce: Final Report-Overview

Greetings.

The Covid-19 pandemic has disrupted life as we know it across much—if not most—of the world and our day-to-day efforts at UpRoot are certainly not immune.

We are a grassroots still-budding organization, having received our 501(c)(3) status in March and resources to accomplish our work are sometimes very limited (i.e., we can't always get done what we'd like to as fast as we want to).

We owe you a report on the 2019 Mobile Farm Workforce (MFW) pilot project, a project that you have kindly and generously invested in and graciously supported. The MFW is a collaborative idea. Along with our colleagues at Rocky Mountain Farmers Union, the Good Food Collective and Veterans to Farmers, we've taken a notion off of the drawing board and have now put workboots on the ground for two harvest seasons to answer an important question: Can we viably support the agricultural labor needs of Colorado's farmers and ranchers with an on-demand and efficient mobile workforce?

The answer is yes, though we have much more work to do to realize our goal of a year-round agricultural services cooperative. For now, this very brief overview shares data from our work in 2019. The writing and editing of the full report is in progress and we will have it published for your review by mid-July.

In the meantime, we again appreciate your generosity and your patience. Please find, attached, a PDF of the overview of our final report. We will be in touch soon.
