The Lewisboro Garden Club, a non-profit organization, was founded in 1972 to promote the art of gardening, aid in conserving natural flora and help beautify public areas.
Many of our activities are centered around Onatru Farm, but we also use Cyrus Russell Community House and the Lewisboro Library. We can also be reached at our Facebook page for more information.

Memorial – Arthur Samuels, a long-time member of the Lewisboro Garden Club, passed away last week. He was a sweet man and true gentleman. He was an early, enthusiastic supporter of Golden Roads Daffodils. There are many daffodils around his neighborhood of Old Church Lane due to his energetic support and wish to beautify his community. Bulbs planted for this year’s Golden Roads, at the intersection of Rt 35 and Spring Street, are in loving memory of our dear friend. His enthusiastic support of the Garden Club working in the Community Garden, caring for his triangle, and opening his home for LGC events was so appreciated. He will be missed.
His family has asked that donations in his memory be sent to the Lewisboro Garden Club. Checks can be sent to PO Box 389, South Salem, NY 10590
