Happy Day Gardeners!
We know most of you are currently set to shovel yet another batch of snow while salting sidewalks and driveways – we also know how much you would rather be shoveling dirt in order to make way for planting the most awesome vegetable seeds for a healthy harvest this season!
It is time to get excited about the 2014 growing season at the MOSAIC Community Gardens located on Chestnut Street in downtown Pottstown! Let us begin by daydreaming about tending to our garden and our neighbor’s garden on sunny days while chatting with a fellow garden member!
Next, sign up today in order to reserve and guarantee your space at the garden! Garden plots are available again this year at both 423 Chestnut and 615 Chestnut Street. We will have approximately 50 plots available for community garden growing this season. Keep in mind, these garden plots are in high demand and will go quickly – so act fast! All you need to do today is fill out the attached application and email or mail it to our office location listed below.
MOSAIC garden plot members from the 2013 growing season have preference in applying for a garden plot this year. Growers from 2013 have until March 15th to submit a completed application. After the deadline, all unreserved plots will be available on a first-come, first-serve basis to new and previous member applications alike.
REMEMBER*** Any one who submits a garden plot application is automatically offered a MOSAIC Community Land Trust membership at no additional cost!
MOSAIC wants all its gardeners to get to know more about the land trust and encourages you to fill out both applications attached. As a member of the Land Trust you can participate in discussions as well as nominate and vote for board members at the annual meeting held on May 22. Full members also have an opportunity to become a member of one of the land trust committees. Committee membership allows participants to transfer skills used at work and home or tap into undiscovered talents to benefit the overall well-being of the land trust and our neighborhoods!
In becoming a community gardener you are counted as a full member of the community land trust. We are enclosing both a garden application and a land trust application.
CLT_application_2014 (2) and MOSAIC – Garden Application 2014
If you complete the application for the community garden, please also complete the application for the land trust. If you do not wish to be a member of the land trust, you do not have to complete that application. Please return the completed application(s) with the appropriate payment to the Mosaic office at 10 South Hanover St., Pottstown.
Kindly considering becoming an active member in the entire organization – the MOSAIC Land Trust welcome’s YOU!
Thank you for your support!
