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.
