Howdy Gardeners and Faithful Supporters,
The community gardens are taking root in a huge way in the downtown Pottstown area!
We have tons of regularly scheduled garden days, summer camps, workshops and other events happening at both gardens in the upcoming months. We will soon have regular office hours planned and posted so anyone who wants to know more about MOSAIC, organic gardening or food nutrition advocacy programs can stop in to learn more! Our produce cart will be back in rotation again this year each Saturday and/or Sunday and other random days throughout the growing season.
That said, we have outgrown the ability to notify everyone via email of each event as they develop. The good news is…if you “Like” us of Facebook or visit our site mosaicclt.org you will still be kept up to date with the latest MOSAIC information!
Reminders, such as “Don’t forget to water your plot” and other quick notes will be sent using Facebook as well.
Don’t have a Facebook account??? GET ONE! :) I say that with all the love of a big, juicy red tomato!
Thanks so much for GROWING with us! We really appreciate it!
See Ya’ at the Gardens,
Mosaic Community Land Trust is holding registration and orientation for new members of its community garden at 423 Chestnut Street on the following Saturdays: April 28, May 5, and May 12 from 9 AM to 12 PM at the garden. On May 5th gardeners will be able to choose the plants they would like in their own plot, and the plants will be delivered to the garden on May 12, which will be a day for planting.
There are plots still available for this season. Plot rates are $25 for households with incomes below $30,000; those with incomes above this level will pay $50. Groups and organizations can plant a plot for a flat $100.00 season fee.
In addition to offering families a safe place to grow healthy, organic food, this fee includes the choice of plants, water on-site, the use of Mosaic tools, workshops, and advice from experienced gardeners. Children are welcome and the garden is available for field trips for students.
To apply and register for your plot or to set up a field trip, please contact Sue Repko at 609-658-9043 or firstname.lastname@example.org or Mary-Beth Bacallao at email@example.com.
