Come Learn about Food Strong’s Vacant Lot Restoration Initiative (VLRI) which was launched through the support of Cuyahoga County. It is a partnership between Food Strong, Rid-All Green Partnership, and the Cuyahoga Land Bank. We work collaboratively to assist community groups with acquiring vacant lots and restoring them through sustainable agricultural practices. Potential site uses include urban farms and gardens, pocket parks, community gathering spaces, and other innovative constructions. We emphasize collaboration to foster project sustainability.
Thanks to our sponsors: Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District, The Living Waters Association, The Sauerland Foundation, The OhioEPA and The Community Life Collaborative.
The CLC hosts subject specific events throughout the year that align with our respective Community Programs. Our non-profit will also have immersive ways to connect through public events and fundraisers periodically.
