Ground Breaks For New Community Garden in Binghamton

Wouldn't it be nice to save some money and grow your own food? Well a new community garden will allow some Binghamton residents to do that.

The salvation army teamed up with the Binghamton Noon Rotary Club, Vines and Lowes today to build a community garden that will allow residents to grow their own fresh produce.

More than 30 volunteers came out to build the garden located on the north side at 530-532 State Street.

"The need here, at this side, the North Side of Binghamton, is that there is no grocery store where fresh produce can be purchased. And so, we thought that this would be, you know, a small way that the Salvation Army could assist families in this community," said Chairman of the Advisory Board for the Binghamton Salvation Army Chet Schultz.

The volunteers built 14 raised bed gardens today and prepared the soil for spring planting.

For a small fee, these beds will be available first come, first served to the community.
