Project description and goals

The project proposed is the Miles Park Community Sunflower Garden. The goals include: beautification through the transformation of a vacant lot; site remediation via the toxic-abating capacities of sunflowers; education through a learning lab for local classrooms about phytoremediation; community involvement; and utilizing the garden’s completion as a first step toward implementing the Green Team’s sustainable land use strategies for the Union Miles neighborhood.

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.
