Volunteers Build a Community Garden in Endwell
An empty lot in an Endwell neighborhood is going to be revitalized as it's transformed into a garden for area residents.
Dozens of volunteers worked to build several raised beds for the future gardens off Davis Avenue.
The project is located near the site of the former Christ the King School. The flood-damaged building was demolished last year.
Broome County legislator Jason Shaw had worked with other area officials and the organization called VINES to develop the new use for the vacant site.
VINES executive director Amelia LoDolce said she was "amazed" at the number of volunteers who helped at the site of the future garden.
The 21 raised garden beds will be available for rent on a first-come, first-served basis. The annual rental fee is $25.
