Gardener Stories


In the 6 years Terry has lived in this house he has created a paradise in his back yard. The front yard is beautiful too and gives a hint to what a visitor will find in the back.


Lisa has lived in this house, which was built in 1914, for the past 12 years. She loves this part of Slavic Village because the neighbors are friendly and look out for each other.

Native Plant Workshops

We are planning a series of workshops educating gardeners about the benefits and uses of native plants in the home landscape. These workshops will be held in conjunction with LEAP (Lake Erie Allegheny Partnership for Biodiversity) at local venues.

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.

Boys & Girls Clubs 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.

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. Produce grown on the farm is sold at the Lakewood Farmer’s Market and to area restaurants.

David Simpson Hospice House Vista Walk and Tribute Gardens

The grounds of the David Simpson Hospice House are a place of solace and reflection. More than a dozen gardens, named in tribute of friends of Hospice of the Western Reserve and in memory of loved ones, are open to all year-round.

Each garden is as unique as the individual, couple or family for whom it is named; each one a reflection of a special relationship.
