After a stellar work day by John Middleton Company volunteers this past Saturday, Pottstown’s first community garden was whipped into shape and is looking for gardeners for the 2012 season!
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.
There are some scholarships available. If you feel you need financial help, please contact Sue Repko, Garden Manager, at 609-658-9043 or email@example.com.
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.
