The Lewisburg Community Garden, the Public Library of Union County, and the Office of Civic Engagement at Bucknell University are sponsoring a Container and Small Space Gardening workshop on Thursday, April 17, at 7 p.m. at the Public Library for Union County, located at 255 Reitz Blvd. in Lewisburg.  

Wanda Boop, Bucknell University greenhouse caretaker and an avid gardener, will demonstrate ways to make the most of available space with indoor, windowsill, and patio container gardens.

The workshop is free and open to the public; registration is not needed. Pre-registration is appreciated; please call 570-523-1172.

A joint project between Bucknell University and the Borough of Lewisburg, the Lewisburg Community Garden is located on the corner of North Water Street and St. Anthony's Street. The garden features individual plots for groups, families or individuals interested in gardening as well as a larger area worked by student and community volunteers to provide produce for local hot meal programs and other food programs.
