The Binghamton Salvation Army and VINES (Volunteers Improving Neighborhood Environments) is celebrating "First Planting Day" this Saturday, June 4th. It's happening at the North Side Community Garden, 530 State Street, Binghamton across from the Binghamton Plaza.

It's located on a vacant lot owned by The Salvation Army and is part of the new North Side Community and Job Training Center.

It's being held as an Open House and orientation for gardeners where free seedlings and seeds will be available for community plots, kitchen plots and gardeners.

The ribbon cutting begins at 10am with North Side City Councilman, Conrad Taylor.

The Salvation Army, VINES and community volunteers began to build the garden last October. When they began the entire lot was infested with weeds. Tomorrow (6/4), they are ready to show the remarkable work that's been done.

If you are interested in getting raised bed to grow produce, then stop on by the ceremony tomorrow morning at 10am.
