Update on Opening Garden Weekend

Hello Mosaic Gardeners!

Rain Boots

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 This Week!

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!20160514_095946_resized

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!
