In 2009, Cleveland’s Stanard School, long shuttered in the east side Hough neighborhood (E. 53rd Street and Stanard), was ‘deconstructed’. A Piece of Cleveland, the city’s demolition department, Councilman Joe Cimperman, St. Clair-Superior Community Development and an army of volunteers took down the old structure and donated bricks to neighbors for their foot paths, gardens and backyard patios instead of sending them to the landfill. The site became an urban garden thanks to Wonder City Farm. OSU Extension plans to expand it and form an agricultural training and hands-on learning center where more Clevelanders will learn from Master Gardeners how to garden for a local market. "This year’s planting will include 'easy' crops, common vegetables that usually do well in Northeast Ohio like greens, tomatoes, beans, peas and peppers," the organizers say. "And as experience and success build, the enterprise will add more unusual or specialized varieties, perhaps hops, fruit trees and bushes, herbs and ornamentals."
