Solid Rock Garden

Solid Rock Garden is a community garden consisting of 20 raised beds. The garden is situated on the grounds of the Upper Cleveland Rescue Squad. Families and individuals come together to grow vegetables for our neighbors in need. Everyone that participates in the garden agrees to donate a portion of what is grown to the local food pantry - UCAN in Lawndale or to anyone else that has a need. We are committed to growing fresh food without the use of pesticides or chemicals.
