From the community-based rooftop garden above the historic Broadway market to a million dollar project on Lake Erie, from the ecological land revival at the Central Terminal to the reclaimed residential sites that now feature urban farms, from the neighborhood rain gardens to the bio-retention cell on the Medical Campus which are helping to save the sewer system – these projects proudly acclaim a solid commitment to environmental improvements and successes.
