Lewisburg Community Garden
The Lewisburg Community Garden offers plots for individuals and groups interested in testing out their green thumb. The garden, which is a joint project between Bucknell University and the Borough of Lewisburg, is located at the intersection of North Water Street and St. Anthony Street. Community rental plots are available to cultivate organic produce for donation to local food access programs and provide educational opportunities. In 2017, approximately 3,800 pounds of produce was harvested for hot meal programs and food banks.
