Did you grow up in the country and one of your favorite things to do was garden? You live in an apartment now or you don't have room for a garden at your present place. Great news, VINES has come to the rescue to solve your problem.

VINES stands for Volunteers Improving Neighborhood Environments and they are hosting a Community Garden Proposal Workshop this Saturday, January 26th. You'll  learn how to put together a community garden proposal to bring a community garden to your neighborhood.

It's free and open to any one that wants to learn more about community gardens or apply for technical and financial assistance with VINE to support them in making a garden in their neighborhood.

The workshop is at the United Presbyterian Church, 42 Chenango Street in Binghamton in the Upper Lounge from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. This is a mandatory step in submitting a proposal that is due by March 15th.

If you're interested in attending you MUST register here or call (607) 205-8108. If you're interested but can't make it on Saturday, call them to schedule a make-up date.

VINES newest gardens are at Davis Avenue in Endwell and Abbott Street on the East Side of Binghamton and it was possible because of the community member garden proposals.

You'll be the envy of your area when you bring a community garden to your neighborhood.
