250 Front Street Binghamton, within the Binghamton Gateway Homes community
VINES and First Ward Action Council are partnering to build a community garden in the Binghamton Gateway Homes Community, at 250 Front Street. Volunteers will come together from 9am-4pm that day to construct raised bed gardens and fill them with soil and compost. A community garden is developed and managed by community members to provide space for people to grow their own food. The Front Street Community Garden will have 20 raised garden beds available 2017 growing season for a $20 rental fee. Priority for garden plot sign-ups will go to those living on Front St and the surrounding side streets.
Anyone interested in renting a bed at the garden or in helping to build the garden is encouraged to come to the Saturday workday. To sign-up to volunteer please call/text us at 607-205-8108 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or rsvp on facebook. Light refreshments and food will be provided.
