Explore and Celebrate Urban Farming in Euclid on August 8th

Memorial Park Community Gardens

An evening of celebration and discovery; Euclid’s Urban Farm and Garden Night will be held on Wednesday, August 8th, from 5:30-8:00pm. Come out to Veteran’s Combating Child Hunger Farm, an urban farm located at the former St. Robert Church site at Lakeshore Boulevard and East 242nd Street, to explore and celebrate urban agriculture in Euclid.  This event is free and open to all; there will be fun activities for children, tastings of locally grown food, and plenty to learn.  Mark your calendars and spend a summer evening learning about the urban farming opportunities in Euclid, such as keeping your own bees, hens, or garden.  Urban agriculture is a vital aspect to building stronger communities, and its success can be seen throughout the country, the Cleveland area, and right here in Euclid. Let’s celebrate Euclid’s urban farms, home and community gardens, and the current and future urban agriculture pursuits in our city!

 For more information, or if you have a vegetable garden, hens, or bees, and would be interested in sharing your knowledge, experience, or harvest at this event please contact Rachel McDonald at CS&DIntern@cityofeuclid.com or (216)-280-3376.
