The MOSAIC Community Land Trust will host its first “work and play day” of the season on Saturday, April 13 from 9 to 12 at the garden, located at 423 Chestnut St.
The day is geared toward those who would like to have a plot to grow their own fresh vegetables.
The event will include a brief information session about what community gardens are about, as well as take applications for raised bed garden plots for the 2013 season.
There will be a wide range of free seeds and seedlings for garden plot owns to dig in and plant that day.
Plot owners pay a small annual fee to lease their plot and actively cultivate it throughout the entire growing season.
Individuals, families, community organizations, youth groups and local restaurants are all welcome to apply for a plot.
A second work and play day is also scheduled for Saturday, April 20 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. if you can’t make the first.
Applications for a plot can also be found at the group’s web site: www.mosaiccommunitylandtrust.org/ and can be mailed to MOSAIC Community Land Trust, 10 S. Hanover St., Pottstown, PA 19464.
