The Lewisburg Community Garden is a joint project between Bucknell University and the Borough of Lewisburg. Through the generosity of the Borough, the Garden utilizes the parcel of land located at the intersection of North Water Street and St. Anthony Street (map) to offer community rental plots, to cultivate organic produce for donation to local food access programs, and to provide educational opportunities. In 2016, 3,688 pounds of produce was harvested for hot meal programs and food banks.
The mission of the Lewisburg Community Garden is to address food insecurity in our region by providing access to suitable growing space and by cultivating produce for donation to local food security programs. We strive to provide educational support to assist individuals, families, and groups wishing to grow their own food in a sustainable manner, and to encourage everyone to serve as environmental stewards. Our goals include:
The Lewisburg Community Garden features individual plots for groups, families or individuals interested in gardening. In addition, a larger area managed by university and community volunteers provides produce distributed to local hot meal programs (including the Bucknell-run Community Harvest weekly meal) and other food access programs in the hopes of increasing access to healthy food options and lowering their operating costs.
