Green Corps strives to be an asset to inner city neighborhoods, providing access to fresh produce, creating educational opportunities through community plots and farm tours, and spreading an awareness of the importance of caring for the environment.
The program’s community presence can be seen at the Cleveland Indian’s Progressive Field. In the 2017 season, Green Corps maintained 3 raised beds at Progressive Field containing perennials, herbs and produce. In addition to those beds, box beds have also been maintained by Green Corps students in the “Player’s Lot.” Totaling a little over 200 sq. ft., these beds contain produce that was used by their chefs to feed the Indians and opposing teams’ players before each game.
Check out what Green Corps is all about by scheduling your visit to one of four learning farms.
