Project description and goals

The project leverages the gardening expertise of a group of Master Gardener’s by turning a plot of vacant land in Detroit Shoreway’s EcoVillage community into a fruit and vegetable polyculture. Moreover, the project allows for increased capacity in the supply of an existing food stand within the neighborhood farmer’s market, thus allowing for fresh food access within the inner city, not to mention the fostering of a local sustainable small business. Beyond the goals of access and entrepreneurship, the goal of EcoVillage produce is to develop a viable economic development model that can be replicated in other neighborhoods where land surplus and food inaccessibility exist.

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.
