All of us are making difficult choices as we face the challenge of COVID-19. Please check the website for updates before planning to attend a club activity. Hoping you find time to work in your garden during this uncertain time and remember to follow the social distance policy.
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. See our Resources page for sites to review in preparation for spring planting .​​​​​​​

Get inspired on how to turn your lawn into a mini-meadow: the how and why
Meadow Meander & Planting Workshop - Saturday, May 22, 2-4pm at Onatru Farm Park & Preserve
Are you curious about meadow's role in the story of our local forest? How does a meadow support wildlife, fresh water, and healthy soil? Lewisboro Land Trust is partnering with the Lewisboro Garden Club to bring you a program that encourages and supports experiments in converting lawn to mini-meadows and explores the aesthetics and biodiversity of meadows. Deanna Novak, a New Canaan Nature Center educator, will lead you on an adventure walk through Onatru trails. The program will also include listening to a family-friendly story about meadows, and visiting an educational mini-meadow tended by members of the garden club. There will be an opportunity for hands-on learning, digging and planting. This program may inspire you to welcome a mini-meadow into your yard too.
First Day Lewisboro - The Garden Club is participating in the Lewisboro Parks & Recreation  First Day event for 2021 as we have done in the past.
This year we are making up Pollinator Palace “kits” for families to drive through and take home. The kit contains the woody materials, instructions and links to the NYS Life Science curriculum and other info about pollinators.
Pictured are the leaflets included. They will get the sliced wood and other commonplace materials to complete the project.
