Grow Broome


By WBNG News

Vestal, NY (WBNG Binghamton) A crop growing program in Broome County that helps city dwellers live healthier is changing hands and expanding.
"Grow Broome" is part of the United Way's annual day of caring.
The day of service is held on or around September 11th, and memorializes victims of 9/11.
Grow Broome gives people living in urban areas crop boxes to to grow healthy foods in tighter quarters.
CHOW, the Community Hunger Outreach Warehouse, will now take over running the program, which has grown significantly over the past few years.
"It now encompasses over 150 of the earth boxes and they're in senior centers, schools, youth program areas, so it's really taken on a life of it's own," said United Way Executive Director Alan Hertel.
United Way will continue working with CHOW on the program.
