Summer Sprout: Cleveland's Community Gardening Program

Thursday, May 16th, 2019
The Summer Sprout Program, a partnership between OSU Extension and the City of Cleveland, hosted the annual Garden Leader Kick-Off on April 6, 2019. At the event, representatives from each garden were invited to gather, network, review the previous season, and prepare for the upcoming season. Garden leaders received seed packs, signed city land licenses, and secured water hydrant permits. The event was led by OSU Extension staff with the assistance of Master Gardener Volunteers. They estimated there were 200 community gardeners in attendance from 108 of the gardens in the program. Summer Sprout was able to distribute 30 raspberry plants and 72 fruit trees throughout the participating gardens. Follow this link to learn more about the Summer Sprout Program.
