the project

The Trinity Cathedral/Charlie Comella Urban Farm was founded in 2006 to raise healthy vegetables, fruits and herbs to be donated to the homeless and hungry populations in downtown Cleveland, Ohio. To date, we have harvested over 31,000 lbs. of food, 100% of which has been donated to hunger programs in our city.

Our program has been successful for many years. One accomplishment so far this year has been the purchase of a shipping container to store our tools, equipment and supplies. This will allow us to focus on work at the Urban Farm as opposed to transporting items back and forth to our church, a one-mile one-way trip.

Because of a great year in volunteerism last year, we think we can grow more food than ever to feed Cleveland’s hungry people.  We are seeking to raise $2,075 to cover our annual budget in 2019 to raise one and a half tons of food. This would be our greatest total in our 14th season of existence. Items needed include topsoil, leaf humus, hand tools, seeds, plant starts, gasoline and 2-cycle oil, landscape fabric and our annual water permit.

 

the steps

  1. Begin to raise money for the budget
  2. Begin work on the Farm starting in March
  3. Buy the items as needed throughout the year
  4. Store items in our new storage container
  5. Plant seeds and plant starts
  6. Begin harvesting in May and deliver food to our hunger ministries partner
  7. Harvest 3,500 lbs. or more of food to by the end of the season in October/November
