Ground was broken for the Ohio City Farm in the summer of 2010, and the nearly six-acre site overlooking downtown Cleveland has become a busy place, with several groups farming on the land. Currently, they include Great Lakes Brewing Company, a sustainability pioneer which recycles its waste to the farm and serves its products in its restaurant; CMHA’s Green Team, a program that gives low-income people the chance to learn to grow their own healthy food; and Refugee Response, which trains refugees, often with agricultural backgrounds in their native countries, how to adapt those skills to Cleveland’s climate.
Much of the food raised in sold to area restaurants and other food businesses. But OCF also maintains a colorful farm stand where people can purchase the food. It opens this week with salad greens, fresh herbs and cooking greens, and, they say, “We will be open every Saturday at the same time until the snow stops us.”
Stop by the stand and visit the farm to see what’s going on there.
