The Binghamton Urban Farm Project
Working as part of and in cooperation with VINES, with the support of the city of Binghamton’s administration and including Binghamton residents, farmers, and students, the project was formed to help create and sustain a more resilient community food system within the city of Binghamton through the formation of an urban farm.
Starting with one farm site at 16-20 Tudor St and expanding as opportunities and funding become available, we grow fresh, nutritious, safe and affordable organic food year round within and around the boundaries of the city. By providing and increasing access to such foods, creating jobs and volunteer opportunities, and implementing educational programs, the project will strengthen food security, stimulate and support a more equitable local economy, and empower the surrounding community.
Promoting our vision of sustainability are the tenets of fairness, equity, food justice as social justice, ecologically sound practices, a strong work ethic, equanimity, and reciprocity.
