Founded in 2012 as a joint venture between Bucknell University and the Borough of Lewisburg, the Lewisburg Community Garden is entering its sixth season. It is flourishing as a way to promote promoting access to healthy produce, and as a conduit for community education and interaction.
Located at the intersection of St. Anthony Street and N. Water Street, the LCG has 39 plots of varying sizes available for rental in 2017 for a $30 fee. Fees are used to cover operating costs, such as the water bill, to purchase seeds and supplies, and to host workshops and educational activities. Applications will be available starting on Friday, March 10, and will be due by 4:30 p.m. on Friday, March 24.
Applications will be available online at LewisburgCommunityGarden.blogs.bucknell.edu and in hardcopy at CommUnity Zone (417 Market Street), the Public Library of Union County (255 Reitz Boulevard), the Lewisburg Borough Building (55 S. 5th Street), and the Bucknell University Office of Civic Engagement (OCE, 119 Bertrand Library).
