About Lewes Community Garden (LCG)

Lewes Community Garden (LCG) is a group of residents who created and manage the greater Lewes area's first community garden, located in the Great Marsh Park in Lewes, Delaware USA. We broke ground in 2019.

The mission of Lewes Community Garden is to create and maintain a sustainable community garden by sharing knowledge, experience, and friendship. Our goal is to provide accessible gardening opportunities for all ages and abilities and to follow organic gardening practices.

We use organic practices to maintain the garden, where we learn from each other, grow nutritious food, and share with the larger community through harvest donations to food banks. In 2022 we donated 472 pounds of fresh, organic produce.

In 2022 the garden had 48 raised beds for growing vegetables and flowers, 53 gardeners and 11 volunteers. The grounds feature a pollinator garden and composting station. Work is underway to eliminate invasive species and restore native plants to the grounds.

​We’re a local, volunteer, non-profit organization under the auspices of the Greater Lewes Foundation and welcome donations. Our organization is developing a multi-year strategic plan to guide the sustainable growth of the garden and the grounds.
