Description

As part of Downtown Cleveland Restaurant Week promotions, enter to win 2 tickets to the 2018 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum Induction Ceremony.

With Induction tickets valued at $500 each, your $25 donation will benefit the downtown SEEDS program.

In 2012, the Downtown Cleveland Alliance (DCA), in partnership with Lutheran Metropolitan Ministries (LMM), launched the SEEDs of Change Workforce Readiness Program to provide specialized training in landscaping and urban gardening to men working to transition out of homelessness.

In its seventh year, DCA and LMM continue to identify ways to improve the workforce readiness of the men graduating from the program. Beginning in 2018, participants will be working under the tutelage of a 10-year certified Master Gardener, who has received intensive horticultural training through The Ohio State University’s Extension Office and is empowered to educate others with timely, research-based gardening information. In addition to the existing curriculum, which includes: planting, weed abatement, watering, raking and composting; the men will learn about soils and fertilizers, integrated pest management, plant pathology and propagation, and selecting and growing attractive plants in an urban environment.

SEEDs also provides assistance from DCA’s social outreach worker for participants to learn soft skills such as workplace protocols, interpersonal communication and money management.

DCA has proudly hired several graduates of the SEEDs program as full time Clean and Safe Ambassadors, where they continue in the service of making Downtown Cleveland a clean, safe, vibrant and inviting community in which to live, work and play.

Join us at 12:00pm on Monday, Februray 26th live on our Facebook page for the raffle drawing.
