Brightside Garden

We live in a beautiful area of Chester County, Charlestown Township.  There is a community garden at Brightside Farm, and for a nominal fee, residents can get a plot that has rich soil, plenty of sunshine and water. It is a lot of fun to watch the vegetables and flowers grow, and a great place to meet friends and neighbors.  The variety of plants is amazing!

The garden is maintained by volunteers, and  we helped out by making the signs.  Jim cut up some old picket fencing, and Betsy hand-lettered the names for 53 garden plots.

This year for a project for the Chester County Camera Club, Betsy made a wreath of flowers from the garden, and hung it on one of the old barn doors at Brightside Farm.  It only lasted a few days, but we really enjoyed the colorful display of summer!
