Each year FaHN conducts a survey entitled Community Garden and Urban Agriculture in South Central New York. The survey began with a Strategic Alliance for Health grant from the Broome County Health Department and focused on the City of Binghamton. After the first year, FaHN began collecting data for the greater South Central New York region. The Community Garden and Urban Agriculture Inventory measures the progress of garden/farm activities in the eight-county region of Broome, Chemung, Chenango, Cortland, Delaware, Otsego, Tioga and Tompkins, and serves as a baseline for measuring future changes to garden/farm activities. Gardens identified include: school gardens, community gardens, community driven urban farms/market gardens and gardens serving food banks/soup kitchens.
