Garden city: How urban farming can change Cleveland

The Cleveland Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) invites you and your friends to a fun summer event where attendees will hear how cultivating the soil impacts our city. Brad Masi of NEOFoodWeb.org leads a dynamic panel discussion on grass-roots efforts (home and community gardens), market gardens, complex garden-based projects, and how urban and rural agriculture intersect. There will also be local food, nature-inspired contemporary art, and a special gardening ?gift? on hand.

Panelists include:

  • Sandy Kish Jordan City Fresh
  • Vel Scott Vel?s Purple Oasis Gardens
  • Mary K. Holmes Board President, Innovative Farmers of Ohio
  • Rich Hoban Stanard Farm
  • Alayne Reitman Green City Growers Cooperative
  • Jesús Sánchez Cleveland Botanical Garden?s Green Corps educational gardening program Green Corps Teen Representative
