Urban Gardening Green

You don't have to live in the country to garden or farm. This week, Our Daily Green had the distinct honor of interviewing Timothy Smith, the founder at the helm of Northeast Ohio's urban gardening movement at Cleveland's CGP. CGP or, Community Greenhouse Partners, purchased the former St. George's Lithuanian church in the heart of the city. Driving to their site, seeing downtown Cleveland on the horizon was almost surreal. If nothing else, it is a religious experience on many levels.

Setting foot on their soil, or more accurately not setting foot on their soil, surpassed it. (Did you know that walking on soil compacts it and therefore makes it less usable?) Additionally, did you know that they have a solution? 

Stay tuned. Our Daily Green is looking for a national publication for this story. We'll keep you posted. 

In the meantime, enjoy a sneak preview, and please, visit their Facebook page and become a fan. You'll be glad you did!
