History

     Urban Agriculture and Community Gardening in Cleveland is as old as the city itself. For archived information about the Cleveland School Garden Program, work-relief gardens, and other history please visit Feeding Cleveland, a part of the Cleveland Memory Project at Cleveland State University. Below is a sample of their incredible archive.
