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.
