Wow is this cool - need participants from East Cleveland

I'm am so glad to see lots of cool developments with local food around here. I was talking with Greg Williams (of Hot Sauce) about local food and getting off the food grid and he remembered how everyone in East Cleveland used to have vegetable gardens... and Greg is not that old, so this is not "back in the old days". I think the memory of this in the next generations is still fresh enough, especially in poorer neighborhoods where growing food was an economic decision, that it can come back in a big way, through efforts like this. I'll spread the word in East Cleveland to see if my community can be represented and educated on market gardening, as we need it there.

Disrupt IT

Morgan's on board

Norm--this is a ten-week series .  I am not sure how it is staged in terms of location, but perhaps Morgan can arrange to have one of the sessions at East Cleveland Public Library, which is a stone's  throw away from CPL's Langston Hughes--all convenient to the widening University Circle.

For your family, you can walk or ride west on Superior Ave. Langston Huges Branch will be on your left, just before you hit East Blvd. (okay, you have to have a good arm, but it is close). 

I hope that CWRU students show up en masse at Langston Hughes.  Let us know.

Cuyahoga 4-H program receives award

  Cleveland has been chosen as only one of three cities in the United States to receive a National 4-H Council/New York Life Insurance Foundation in Youth Governance Partnership grant for 2008. 

Cuyahoga County 4-H will receive $92,000 per year for the next three years to develop more 4-H clubs for underserved urban audiences, and involve young people in decision making and civic engagement efforts to develop life skills.  As part of the program, 4-H will also sponsor a delegation of the new 4-H members to attend the 4-H Citizenship Washington Focus program in Washington, D.C. each summer.
