MOSAIC has a table on the 19th and is lending a helping hand on the 26th along with the HillSchool as part of the CARES endeavor!  CARES, which stands for Community, Awareness, Responsibility, Empowerment and Sustainability is a two-day event pioneered by the Hill School, the Borough of Pottstown and Pottstown School District.  

The events were designed to increase community activism, spruce up Pottstown’s core neighborhood, and create momentum for additional efforts. 

The 19th is an information and awareness event being held at the Hill School. The event will offer a variety of services and resources, including a blood drive. If you would like to register to donate, please visit http://vols.pt/M8yrqe and select the time that’s best for you. Thank you!

October 26th is the day planned to spruce up Pottstown!  Please email me to find out more and to learn how you can be a part of this great opportunity!

Garden Plot – Either Wrap it Up or Keep On Watering and Weeding IT – Let’s Get ‘Er Done!

Now is a great time clean up your garden plot if your garden is no longer producing or if you have been unable to water, weed and tend to your plot on a regular basis.  Remember folks, this is your responsibility. 🙂

For those who would like to keep on gardenin’…there are vegetables such as lettuces, greens and root vegetables they flourish in cooler weather.  Get your plot ready to add these items once the tomatoes plants have run their course.  In the meantime, garden plots need to be watered now just as much as they did in August.  Our days have been warm, sunny and dry.  Show your plants and plot a little love..

GARDENERS, FRIENDS and VOLUNTEERS of MOSAIC

Please contact me if you would like to volunteer your time to help set up, break down or gather produce for the stand or…if you would like to help “close up” some things in and around the garden.

As always, I’ll see ya’ at the gardens…

Laura
