Calling all gardeners!
Mosaic Community Land Trust Community Gardens is hosting its 3rd Annual Garden Contest!
This year, the contest is BIGGER and BETTER than ever, offering up more than $2,500 is cash prizes and other gifts! More categories = more chances to take home a top prize! Newly added is our Neighborhood category where three or more houses can work on a garden project together for a change to win up to $800! And our Junior Gardener category (for entrants under 18 years old), giving them a chance to win up to $100 cash!
And best of all, we are pleased to announce that this year’s contest is open to all borough residents! Anyone living in the Borough of Pottstown can enter for a chance to win BIG!

Good Morning Everyone!
Today is a perfect day to begin planning your community garden bed for the 2015 growing season! You can start by filling out all of the required paperwork now in order to reserve your place in the gardens later! Mosaic gives “first dibs” to previous community garden members, so get your paperwork completed and emailed or snail-mailed to our office today! By becoming a garden member, you are automatically a member of the Land Trust. The land trust is a sustainable model for community involvement, increased homeownership, neighborhood stabilization, arts/culture and, of course, community gardens!
Not interested in gardening this year? You can still be a part of the Mosaic initiative by becoming a Community Land Trust member and help us change the face of our neighborhoods!
Sign up now! And, if you have any questions do not hesitate to send me an email…Thank you and I hope to see you in the gardens this year!

Holiday Tree Donation Cards:
We have partnered with Pine Hill Tree Farms again this year to offer their locally-grown, beautiful fresh trees throughout our community! Mosaic will receive $10 for every tree purchase made at Pine Hill Tree Farms between 11/18 – 12/24/2014. A donation card will need to be presented at the time of purchase in order for the donation to make its way to the gardens. Please see a Mosaic garden committee member or contact me for a donation card today! Your tree purchase will support our local tree farm and Mosaic! It’s a Win-Win for our community!
We will have at least 200 donation cards printed so you all can also participate in handing out cards and sharing information about the community gardens and the land trust affordable housing initiative in the process!
“Mosaic will visit Pine Hill Tree Farms to transport a tree for those who are unable to visit the farm. Please contact us via email to make arrangements for the purchase and delivery of your tree.”
End of Season Survey – REMINDER (so far, only 5 gardeners have completed the survey…we need 100% participation):
Mosaic needs and values your input regarding how we did this season! The information you provide will be used to report to our funders. Please take a moment to complete our questionnaire.
