The Garden Project

Comprised of The Learning Garden, The Giving Garden, The Butterfly Garden, and The Flower Garden, The Garden Project provides benefits and learning opportunities for children and adults in the North Pocono community. Planned and maintained by community volunteers, our gardens are places where generations interact, children discover, and everyone works together toward the gardens’ success. The Garden Project has won awards and earned recognition from the International Master Garden Conference and the Lackawanna County Commissioners. Much of the produce grown is donated to our local food pantry, supporting hundreds of area families. The Garden Project is always in need of volunteers to plant, weed, water, or harvest. If you’re interested in volunteering, please print out The Garden Project Volunteer Form here, fill it out, and submit it to our Circulation desk.
