This past week the state of Cleveland , Ohio unveiled its plan to open to one of the “largest” garden facilities in it’s “Central” urban neighborhood section. The project is said to be approximately ” 3.25 acre greenhouse roughly the size of three football fields and located at 5800 Diamond Avenue”.

They want to have the residents to have a wider awareness of how to become self made gardeners , growing their own produce and distributing it for sale to consumers eager to purchase. I feel that is a great alternative for urban youth who may only be limited in inspiration for a profession other than a sports athlete or entertainer. It can expand their imagination, with the outline of there is more things attainable in success beyond an eight-block radius.
