Description

In Cleveland, Ohio, residents planted a Victory Garden on the downtown Mall where the "Cleveland War Memorial: Fountain of Eternal Life" currently stands. Crops produced by the Mall garden included beans, cabbage, tomatoes, beets, broccoli, corn, turnips, peppers, and more supplying the community with a wide array of fresh vegetables. Local business leaders, schoolchildren, and Cleveland residents all did their part by planting seeds, thinning crops, and harvesting the produce. The Mall garden featured a small shed which housed all the tools residents would need to help tend the plot.
