Cleveland Urban Farm Takes One Step Forward, One Step Back

One of Cleveland’s most ambitious urban farming projects took a big step forward and one step back last week.

Community Greenhouse Partners raised enough money to start putting up its first “hoop house,” a greenhouse-type growing structure, at East 67th and Superior. But their attempt to have the water turned on in the rectory of St. George — the decommissioned church the group bought from the Catholic Diocese of Cleveland — nearly ended in disaster.
