The Lewisburg Garden Club’s special projects support education, beautify public spaces, provide learning opportunities and make our community a better place to live and visit.
Hufnagle Park Garden
The Lewisburg Garden Club’s Hufnagle Park Garden is our signature project. Originally designed and planted in 1986, the garden is located at the north end of Hufnagle Park adjacent to Market St. Club members come together several times a year for planting, mulching and pruning. Individual members take turns weeding and deadheading to keep the garden looking fresh during the summer.

Packwood House Museum Garden
Garden Club members volunteer to maintain the Packwood House Museum’s Oriental woodlands garden. The walled garden, shaded by yews and Japanese cedars, is unique to the area.
The Lewisburg Garden Club awards scholarships to graduating Lewisburg High School seniors who have been accepted at accredited institutes of higher learning and who intend to pursue degrees related to such Club interests as horticulture, botany, biology, landscaping, forest sciences and environmental sciences. Scholarship Committee members review student applications in May and make presentations at Lewisburg High School’s Senior Recognition and Awards Ceremony in early June.
Each September a colorful band of scarecrows appear in Lewisburg’s Hufnagle Park. The scarecrows are designed, dressed and installed by Lewisburg Garden Club members who have been creating the ever-changing cast of scarecrow characters since 2006.
The Club offers workshops for members and the public. Hands-on workshops have focused on plant propagation techniques, creating toadstool houses for the garden, building rain barrels, pruning shrubs
and designing unique floral arrangements.
Lewisburg Arts Festival Plant Sale
The Lewisburg Garden Club holds its annual plant sale in late April during Lewisburg’s premier event—the Lewisburg Arts Festival. The Club’s Arts Festival booth is a garden shop offering a variety of garden accessories and tools along with annuals, perennials and herbs. Club members provide many of the plants from their own gardens.
