NFL Draft Community Garden Build at William Rainey Harper Elementary School

Thursday, May 06th, 2021

The NFL, in partnership with Ohio State University Extension and the City of Cleveland’s Summer Sprout program, Greater Cleveland Sports Commission, and NFL partner Verizon hosted an event on April 28, 2021, to build a community garden and create a pollinator garden and learning area at William Rainey Harper School. The community garden will be a source of hands-on education for students, teaching them basic plant science while actively demonstrating that growing your own produce can be fun. The garden will help to address food insecurity and access to healthy options. Food grown at the garden will be donated to the local community and will support snack time at the school. OSU’s Summer Sprout and several master gardeners led the garden build, with the help of students, parents, and teachers. Follow this link to learn more.
