Garden Award and Harvest Party at Mosaic Saturday

The Mosaic Community Garden at 423 Chestnut St. has won the "Garden of Distinction Award" from the Pennsylvania Hosrticultural Society.

The Mosaic Community Land Trust's garden at 423 Chestnut St. will be awarded the Garden of Distinction Award from the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society's "Gardening and Greening" contest, according to an email sent out by garden manager Daniel Price.

"This is due to the amazing community and plot holders that have put years of work into these gardens. You continue to showcase how beautiful of a community Pottstown truly is," Price wrote.

To celebrate that achievement and to thank all for an amazing year, the community is invited to the gardens' end of the season Harvest Party tomorrow, Saturday, Oct. 14th between 12 and 4 p.m. at the garden at 423 Chestnut Street

Similar to last year, the event is in conjunction with Haunts on High and Pottstown Arts Walk and is an open house for the entire community. Food and drink will be on hand, but pot luck dishes are welcome too. (Perhaps it’s something made from vegetables in your plot or home garden.) 

Feel free to invite friends and family and spread the word to your neighbors. All are welcome. 
A "Harvest Party" will be held from 12 to 4 p.m. Saturday

In addition to the food, there will be activities for children as well plant swapping for recreational gardeners that participated or would like to participate in next year’s garden contest.

"I want to thank each of you for being involved in our community gardens this past year. With the departure of Laura (Washington) and with me hitting the ground running in spring, the last six months have flown by," Price said in his email. "The entire community has been extremely welcoming and I’m eternally grateful for your energy, love and patience this year."

As the season winds down, registrations will available for new members as well as a sign up list for returning members from this or previous years. 

Mosaic is also inviting suggestions for names for their two gardens, one at 423 Chrstnut St. and the other at 615 Chestnut St..  

"As we move forward and grow, the goal is to get each garden to have it’s own identity and committee. I know myself and the Mosaic board would love to hear your ideas of what that would look like," Price wrote.
