Transplanting Perennials at Binghamton Urban Farm

Saturday, September 27th, 9am-12pm, at the Binghamton Urban Farm

Come out on Saturday to the Binghamton Urban Farm to help transplant some of the perennial beds that have gotten a bit too dense. We will also be tending to some of the already established perennials with compost and mulch. The day will start with a short lesson about the importance of pollinator plants in the garden, and how to transplant perennials. This is a hands on workday/workshop. Hope to see you there.

Any questions please contact sean@vinesgardens.org or call (607) 232-3582.

Binghamton Urban Farm Orchard Design

Tuesday, September 16th, 6pm at the Binghamton Urban Farm

At the Binghamton Urban Farm we have been preparing the ground on Varick for a small diverse orchard. We will be planting in the Spring and are looking for your input. At this design session we will go over the several design drafts and outline of goals this year’s VINES summer youth employees came up with. We will brainstorm how to use elements of these drafts in the final design as well as begin thinking about what the final design of the orchard will look like.

Hope to see you there.

Any questions please email sean@vinesgardens.org, or call (607) 232-3582.
