Garden Work and Play Day – Sunday, July 14, 3:00-6:00 PM‏

Well, we are so sorry the Garden Work and Play Day was canceled today due to rain that never really showed up! 😦

But have NO fear, tomorrow will soon be here and we are set to hang out in the garden for a Sunday afternoon Work and Play Day!

Please join us as there is SO much to do and experience at the garden this SUNDAY!

When:   Sunday, July 14, 2013

What:  Garden Work and Play Day, Kids Composting Workshop and the MOSAIC Community Gardens Gardening and Home Beautification Contest Awards

Garden Work and Play Day begins at 3:00 PM
 
Sunday is a perfect time to refill the empty spaces in your garden with something NEW!  Add a fresh herb or root vegetable to your garden to maximize your harvest for the season!
 

The garden needs your help in order to look its best!  There is a great need to weed, water and to rotate the compost pile….there is good, rich soil and the bottom of the heap.  Let’s get under there and use it!

 
Kids Composting Workshop begins at 3:30 PM
 
Children will learn about where soil comes from and why worms, bees and other crawly creatures are good for us and our plant!
 
MOSAIC Gardening & Home Beautification Contest Awards Ceremony begins at 5:00 PM
 
The contest entry deadline has come to pass…see who takes top prize in this year’s MOSAIC Community Land Trust’s Garden and Home Beautification Contest!  Cash prizes will be awarded in each category!
 
This Sunday is an awesome day for the entire family to come to the garden!  Plan to spend your morning playing in the garden, watching your children learn more about soil and celebrating those who have taken the time to make Pottstown a more beautiful place to call home!
 
and other honorable mentions…
 
Early Season Surveys are Now Due
 
If you haven’t already, please take an opportunity this week to fill out an early season survey.  This information is vital in understanding your experience in gardening prior to joining the community garden and today.  Copies of the survey are located in the shed.  Kindly fill one out today and place it in the envelope marked ‘Completed Surveys’.
 
MOSAIC Produce Stand
 
The children of the garden will adding the finish touches to the stand on Sunday. We will use the stand to sell produce and other goodies from the gardens and the art program.  Remember to let us know if you have vegetables throughout the growing season you would like to donate to our youth program that they may sell. The proceeds will be used for additional youth programs and activities.
 
Garden Tending (Need Help?)
 
Please contact a myself or a fellow gardener if you will be away, or have a crazy work schedule and need someone to look after your plot.  With the temperatures soaring, your garden plot needs a lil’ attention everyday. Remember to water before 10:00 AM or after 3:00 PM (watering soil only and not the actual plant) for the best results.
 
See Ya’ at the Gardens (this Sunday),
 
Laura
