Burten, Bell, Carr Development, Inc. (BBC) along with Ward 5 Councilwoman Phyllis Cleveland and representatives from the State of Ohio and City of Cleveland are holding a press conference to make a special announcement about the Urban Agriculture Innovation Zone on Wednesday, October 27, 2010 at 3:00pm at Otter Park, East 83rd Street & Gill Avenue.
An endeavor spearheaded by BBC, the Urban Agriculture Innovation Zone will recycle and repurpose 28 acres of underutilized vacant land into the largest urban farm in the United States.
The Urban Agriculture Innovation Zone will create new income-generating jobs and entrepreneurial opportunities for new linkages to a variety of agricultural production cycles, cultivate a new thriving neighborhood economy, and serve as a source of local food production.
Please join us Friday! We’d like as many of our residents, partners, and supporters in attendance as possible. Confirm your attendance on Facebook here.
I will be there!!!
