Give Tuesday for The Amazing Raise!
Support the work of Mosaic Community Land Trust by giving generously on Tuesday, October 17th for THE AMAZING RAISE!
Your donation will be matched and so will go even further in helping Mosaic continue to run our community gardens, educational programming, promotion of the arts, and revitalization of housing within our Pottstown Community. Your generous contribution is 100% tax deductible.
Please help by spreading the word about The Amazing Raise. Donations are being accepted now!
We are pleased to announce the closing of the first home in the Mosaic Home Buyers Program in partnership with Genesis Housing!
This lovely remodeled home on Queen Street in Pottstown will be the first of many properties Mosaic hopes to make more affordable for those looking to buy their first home. Genesis handled the rehabilitation of the property, while Mosaic provided closing costs to the buyer to assist them in purchasing it. In addition Mosaic took care of the installation of landscaping to beautify the outside of the home and will provide access to the gardening experts at Mosaic for help and advice for the first year as the new owners settle into their home.
Going forward, the Home Buyers Program will become the Mosaic Community Land Trust Homes Program. After participating in a home buyer education program, interested buyers will be directed to available Community Land Trust (CLT) homes for purchase. See the Mosaic website for more information on CLT homes and how they differ from other types of homes.
Interested in learning more? Contact Mosaic at firstname.lastname@example.org or through our website, mosaicclt.org.
Mark your calendar now for OCTOBER 17th, 2017! The Amazing Raise is a 24-hour giving challenge in which your donation can be leveraged into an even greater contribution toward Mosaic Community Land Trust!

Hello Mosaic Gardeners!
Due to the predicted heavy rains Friday and Saturday, we are going to try to squeeze all of our planting into the morning hours Saturday when it is predicted we may have a short reprieve in the rain. All three of the community gardens will be open and there will be someone there to assist with anything you need from 8:00 am until 12:00 pm. If that time does not suit you, please contact Daniel Price to set up another time to head over and plant your plot. His number is (610)420-6082.
See you in the gardens!
Opening garden days for both gardens on Chestnut and the garden at Barth will be this week! Staff from Mosaic will be at all three gardens to guide and assist you with planting and to show you around the garden if you are new to Mosaic this year. The hours will be Friday, May 5th from 4:00-8:00 pm and Saturday, May 6th from 8:00 am to 2:00 pm. There will be some plants and seeds available for use, but please feel free to bring your own varieties, as well!
If those days and times are difficult for you, please arrange with Daniel Price, our new Gardens Manager, to do your introductory visit to your garden at another time. His number is (610)420-6082. If you are a seasoned Mosaic member, you are welcome to begin planting anytime after you send in your application.
There are plots still available at all three gardens, please contact Daniel or see the “I’d like to Join!” tab on our website, mosaicclt.org for community garden packets and information on how to lease a plot for the season.
See you in the gardens!
Interested in adding a butterfly garden to your landscape? It’s a wonderful addition to any yard, and helps in butterfly migration, but must be done with care.

This workshop is being taught by famed local butterfly expert Ron Richael on April 29th at ArtFusion, 254 E. High Street, Pottstown. The workshop will begin at 6:30.
