Welcome to the Garden!
The Carpenter Art Garden is located at 301 Carpenter Street. Under the umbrella of the Binghampton Development Corporation, the Carpenter Art Garden partners with neighborhood children and adults, as well as local artists to transform a blighted lot into a place of beauty. Each Tuesday volunteers work with approximately 70 children on permanent art installations, take home art projects and the tending to the garden boxes. The space is an actual garden of artwork.
As our garden continues to grow, the Purple House opened in September 2014. This a space for our programs to flourish during the cold winter months. At the Purple House we offer tutoring, small group art lessons, mentoring and clubs every day after school. As a faith based response to serving others, the Art Garden welcomes all people.
