They maintain a vested interest in the landscapes and gardens throughout the Village of Lewiston’s public spaces, having taken the initiative to improve the historic village from a gardening perspective for more than 90 years.
In addition, the Lewiston Garden Club is preparing for its biggest fundraiser of the year, Lewiston Garden Fest on June 16 & 17. All proceeds from the event go back into the soil of the local community for civic beautification efforts, including the flowers for this annual planting day.
