A Busy Spring Saturday in Pottstown

So, as our readers like to remind us with alarming regularity, neither The Mercury nor the Digital Notebook team, can be everywhere all the time.

And this Saturday was just one of those spring days when everyone was out and everything was going on all the time.

Luckily for Pottstown, John Armato often IS everywhere all the time.

So although, we couldn't cover the re-dedication of Franklin Elementary School Saturday because we were covering the youth anti-violence summit at the Ricketts Center, John could.

And although we couldn't make it to the track meet at Pottstown High School, because fit for life reporter Michelea Patterson was covering the YMCA Healthy Kids Day in Boyertown, John could.

And although I had a mountain of laundry to do, and was up until 3 a.m. putting together the blog post from the Jazz Band Championships, I did manage to stop by the Moasiac Community Land Trust community garden.

There, I spoke with manager Laura Washington about a program Saturday teaching gardeners how to plan for the frost when planting, and about their efforts to use all organic, non-GMO seeds in their gardens.

Here is some video of what that was all about.

In the meantime, here are some Tweets and video stolen from lots of other correspondents, about a very busy Saturday in Pottstown.
