Today’s edition of The Plain Dealer has an article with highlights from yesterday’s Urban Agriculture Innovation Zone press conference and a synopsis of The Ohio State University Extension Service’s six-acre pilot project to take root in Ward 5 in the spring.

Urban Organics is ready to supply this and other urban gardens with a variety of great products to help grow healthy food in Food Deserts, especially the areas that have less than ideal soil conditions. Some urban gardens are creating/enhancing their soil by composting on the site. This is a great idea but a lot of work. The composting process also takes time and expertise.
Urban Organics has soil mixing capabilities to create a blend of nutrient rich soil that can be used immediately. They also carry a great new product call the GardenSoxx®.
Urban Organics is also a licensed producer for Filtrexx International, in Grafton, Ohio, and makes GardenSoxx using a special composted soil blend in their mesh, developed for erosion control products. GardenSoxx are a weed seed free, no till, ready to plant, garden that can be placed anywhere!
