Evidently Vermont’s NOFA has come up with a new spin on dating. Weed-dating instead of speed dating. Singles gather at a local farm and pull weeds. When the goat bell rings after seven minutes, they switch rows and/or weeding partners. Makes sense that performing some type of task or activity is a whole lot less stressful than sitting across from each other at a table, just staring.

The first ever weed-dating event was sponsored by NOFA and held at Tunbridge Farm in Tunbridge, VT. Nine singles participated in the event. Whether any dating relationships will stem from the weeding session remains to be seen. What is known however, is that the leek beds at the farm are in a whole lot better shape.

The article explaining the particulars of the weed dating phenomenon can be found at the Burlington Free Press.
