(CLEVELAND) Three City of Cleveland sites will soon see upgrades in landscaping thanks to the second annual Planting with a Purpose event on Saturday, October 27th.
“The addition of plants in these three community spaces is not merely a cosmetic one,” said Mayor Frank G. Jackson. “Enhancements to our green spaces are a valuable part of improving the quality of life for all Clevelanders, adding value and beautifying our neighborhoods.”
The Planting with a Purpose event is the result of a successful collaboration between the City of Cleveland and A.J. Petitti of Petitti Garden Centers, Ricky Smith and Random Acts of Kindness Everywhere (R.A.K.E.), MTD Products Inc, Kurtz Brothers and The Scotts Miracle-Gro Company. About 60 volunteers are scheduled to plant 3,000 various types of greenery around the city. The three locations include:
- Kerruish Park (Ward 1) – 17218 Tarkington Ave.
- Halloran Park (Ward 11) – 3550 W. 117th St.
“We’re proud to support the City of Cleveland in this beautification project,” said A.J. Petitti. “Thanks to the volunteers who will generously be giving up their Saturday morning to plant with us, we’re working together to make Cleveland an even better place.”
