A New Community Garden is Sprouting in Collinwood

AMERICORPS volunteer prepares soil for raised beds

Spring has arrived and Summer is almost here. Some of your neighbors have staked out a plot in the Collinwood Neighborhood Catholic Ministries Community Garden.  On May 19th they took rake, hoe and wheelbarrow in hand to prepare the garden for planting.  They had the help of some of AMERICORPS volunteers and the Cleveland Neighborhood Progress Cleveland Clean and Green truck. The truck was filled with all sorts of tools and supplies, including poison ivy solution and bad aids. A hoop house is being constructed on the property.  This structure will enable gardeners to harvest fresh produce until the end of November.

There is still time to stake out a plot and plant your favorite vegetables.  There is no fee involved.  For more information please contact Sr. Madeline at mmuller68@gmail.com or 216-408-0214.
