Dunham Tavern Museum and Gardens

Once a stagecoach stop of the Buffalo-Cleveland-Detroit post road, today the Dunham Tavern Museum is the oldest building still standing on its original site in Cleveland. The 1824 home of Rufus and Jane Pratt Dunham in MidTown Cleveland is now a designated Cleveland Landmark. The Museum and its gardens offer a glimpse of history and insight into the lifestyles of early Ohio settlers and travelers.

Boys & Girls Clubs of Cleveland

Surprises await those who visit the Boys & Girls Clubs of Cleveland site on Broadway Avenue in Slavic Village. The property has a half-acre farm, a pollinator garden, 25 newly planted trees and a new interactive Children’s Garden.

All are maintained by teens in BGCC’s horticulture program, a work-study program for high school students. The program teaches work skills to inner-city youth and inspires them to reach for success.

Kim and Mac Adler were last summer's (2017) Raffle winners! The Adlers and their two children just moved into their new home in Solon after renting for a time. They were very excited to receive the wheelbarrow and its contents as they had no gardening tools before they won the raffle.

Bay Branch Farm

Bay Branch Farm is an urban vegetable farm with locations in Lakewood and Cleveland. The Cleveland site features a 12’ x 28’ hoophouse growing tomatoes and cucumbers, field crops and fruit trees, and some permaculture design, including “hugelkultur” beds and an herb spiral.
