Tremont

Formerly a section of Ohio City which was annexed by Cleveland in 1867, Tremont is located just south of downtown Cleveland. At the heart of Tremont is Lincoln Park, with its Victorian-style gazebo and green lawns bisected by tree-lined walkways. The park in turn is encircled by restored Victorian homes, chic restaurants, historic churches, art galleries and artists' studios. For more about Tremont visit http://www.tremontwest.org/.

Gardener Stories

Hand-painted rain barrel at Fat Cats

Ricardo grew up in Rocky River and opened his restaurant in Tremont in 1997. He was one of the “pioneers” who nurtured the renaissance of Tremont as a hub of great dining and creative enterprises. Fat Cats Restaurant has an herb garden in the back and a large vegetable garden at the side where Katie Maurer helps Ricardo grow heirloom vegetables for use in the kitchen. The restaurant also has several brightly painted rain barrels and creative bicycle racks ready for the Cuyahoga Valley bike trail to be completed.

When asked what he likes about Cleveland Ricardo replied, “the mix of people.” He enjoys being part of the “comeback” of Cleveland, being part of the solution, providing employment for locals and a stepping stone to a better life for others.

Patsy writes: " I consider myself a new gardener even though I grew up eating what my grandmother and mother grew in their gardens. They canned, froze and dried what we ate over the winter. My grandparents also raised livestock, so we ate very well. It wasn't until I bought my house in Tremont in 2002 that I started taking gardening seriously, I suppose because it had always been so familiar. My yard and garden was a challenge-- my goal was to remove all the grass and create an edible garden mixed in with traditional bedding. I also wanted to plant items that are visible at night-- a moon garden--to aid in safety, because the area where I live has issues with broken street lights and vacant buildings.
