New in Cleveland Memory! "Feeding Cleveland: Urban Agriculture"

Cleveland Public School students

The Cleveland Memory Project has just added a new web exhibit!

Dedicated to the urban gardeners and farmers of Cleveland, Feeding Cleveland: Urban Agriculture is a joyous look at those who "toil in the soil" - from the relief workers during the Great Depression, citizens in their victory gardens during WWII and children in school-sponsored horticulture programs, to the modern-day enthusiasts and entrepreneurs in community and market gardens.
