Lewiston GardenFest

The Lewiston Garden Club is a not-for-profit organization that promotes all phases of home gardening, good horticultural practices, civic beauty and conservation of natural resources. The club plays a major role in the beautification of the Village of Lewiston from one season to the next by planting flower beds, maintaining gardens at several locations and stringing hundreds of yards of garland along Center Street. Their fundraising events have allowed them to contribute fountains, benches, trees, landscaping and much more to the Lewiston community.  The club has sponsored projects around the world that promote horticultural growth and civic responsibility.

The Lewiston Garden Club has a long history.  It originated in 1927 and became a member of the Federated Garden Clubs of New York State in 1946. The club meets once a month throughout most of the year on the fourth Monday of each month at the Lewiston Public Library.  Each meeting is highlighted by some activity, from a guest speaker or hands-on community project to a field trip to a nearby point of interest.

Along with meetings, the club contributes ideas and manpower to annual Garden Club activities and community events- from progressive luncheons, perennial sales and potluck picnics to assisting with a community fair and lending our garden hands and tools to beautify our lovely village.
