Bellefonte Community Children's Garden

The mission of the Children's Garden, created in 2007, is to delight children and nurture their sense of wonder in nature. This beautiful place for fun, exploration and learning includes six raised beds where youth groups grow vegetables, plus a sensory herb garden, a garden full of plants with animal names, a fairy garden, and a butterfly garden planted by the Penn State Master Gardeners.

Whether working to make sure Talleyrand Park shows visitors a pretty face, or to beautify the Borough with flower plantings during the summer; or working at the 9-11 Memorial Garden, or planting seeds with school classes in the Community Children's Garden, the Garden Club members are volunteers working to make our town a pleasant and interesting place to live. We also learn about gardening topics at our meetings, on field trips, and through garden tours.

The mission of the Bellefonte Garden Club is to promote gardening, educate our members about gardening, and use plants and landscaping to beautify our community. We are proud to be a part of Historic Bellefonte Inc. Visit us online at


HBI is a not-for-profit, charitable organization dedicated to the revitalization of Bellefonte and the preservation of the Borough's rich historic, cultural and architectural heritage. Through a volunteer structure, HBI serves as an umbrella vehicle to coordinate community efforts to carry out its mission.
