City Rising Farm is located in the heart of Cleveland, Ohio.
Our mission is to help people in underserved communities learn to grow fresh local food and build healthy long lasting relationships with each other so they can use those skills and relationships to create opportunities in their own neighborhoods.
The first location we are working in is the Hough Neighborhood on the east side of Cleveland. Our first project was developing a community garden. After much discourse around the subject of land use we broke ground on the Blaine Avenue Community Garden on June 12, 2010.
Residents and community partners came together and cleaned up the lot, built and filled raised beds and enjoyed the camaraderie that comes with shared work and vision.
In the following months we developed programming and relationships that encouraged new relationships and opportunities and enhanced those already established.
