Project description and goals

Part of the difficulties of relocating to a foreign land includes a lack of access to native foods. The project proposes to increase food access to local immigrant communities, with the intent to fill in the gap that is the limited culturally variant fresh food options existing in the region. Various cultural gardens will include those foods representing areas of Africa, the Far East, the Middle East, and the Caribbean. Other goals involve creating a sense of ownership for those that do not have other stewardship opportunities, with the premise that sweat equity in a city is a major means of acclimation.

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.
