Project description and goals

The project intends to remediate the lack of access to fresh produce in the community through the development of an orchard on five contiguous vacant lots. The lots will include both fruit trees and berry bushes. Goals of the project include neighborhood health initiatives via the availability of fresh produce, as well as fostering a sense of community through shared labor and harvest.

About ReImagining a More Sustainable Cleveland:
Re-Imagining Greater Cleveland is a pragmatic, data driven strategy for the management and reuse of vacant properties in Cleveland and Cuyahoga County. The initiative builds on the work began in the 2007 Re-Imagining a More Sustainable Cleveland study, which was led by nonprofit community development organization Neighborhood Progress, Inc. (NPI) and Cleveland Urban Design Collaborative.
