Today, in our 47th year, we are still true to our roots. We are a hands-on, work-the-ground, community-service club. The women and men of our garden club represent the full range of gardeners, from the very experienced to those new to gardening. The Lewisboro Garden Club designs, plants, and maintains seventeen roadside flower triangles; cares for the Alice Poor Memorial Garden at Onatru Farm; manages the organic Community Gardens at Onatru Farm, tends the window boxes at the Cyrus Russell Community House, and more. Annually, the Lewisboro Garden Club awards two scholarships to John Jay High School seniors who participate in environmental or horticultural programs.
The Lewisboro Garden Club coordinates Golden Roads, a roadside daffodil beautification initiative. Golden Roads, in its twelfth year, encourages homeowners and businesses to plant daffodils along their roadsides. Each fall we plant 4,000 daffodils in public spaces, with over 42,000 daffodil bulbs planted to date.
Every December we make holiday evergreen swags and mount them on signs at 17 locations throughout Lewisboro, including hamlet markers and public building signs. To commemorate Earth Day, we participate in the “Adopt a Highway” program by removing litter on the 1 and 1/2 miles of Boway Road in South Salem.
Finally In January as part of the Town’s First Day Celebration we have a pine cone feeder workshop for families at the Onatru Farm.
