Green Houses and Greenhouses: The Green Houses and Greenhouses project is an EPA-funded collaboration between the Buckeye Area Development Corporation and Cleveland city government to create an urban eco-village in the Buckeye neighborhood of Cleveland. Using EHW expertise and the Rid-All Urban Agriculture Training Center, these groups will work to educate Buckeye residents on community agriculture and healthy housing topics. Residents will be assisted in home energy efficiency and water conservation measures and identified leaders will work on establishing the Buckeye neighborhood as a sustainable and equitable centre.
