    Summer Art Garden 2019

     

    A garden requires patient labor and attention. Plants do not grow merely to satisfy ambitions or to fulfill good intentions. They thrive because someone expended effort on them. LA COSECHA GALERIA is proud to present its annual “Summer Art Garden” event series which will commence on Saturday, June 29, 2019 from 3:00PM to 10:00PM, located at 5404 Storer Avenue, Cleveland, Ohio 44102. Featuring the original artwork, poetry, performances and music. Along with the art building opening, we are extending an invitation to those interested in having a space next door at the “Summer Art Garden” music festival to display or exhibit.

     

    La Cosecha Galeria - Literally translated means, “The Harvest Gallery”, but metaphorically it has a much deeper meaning. To make use of what is available, in the area, the fruit at hand. Instead of looking elsewhere for sustenance, to grow and feed off our own talent. In 2002 the first Latino owned and managed art gallery in the greater Cleveland metropolitan area was born, La Cosecha Galeria (The Harvest Gallery). But it stood for much more; it was an understanding, a union, an opportunity to display an identity. The ability to open the doors to other artists as an outlet to what is possible. Well received by the community, who until then were starved for a place to showcase their culture and artistic abilities. It always held a warm place in their heart and a revered memory for those that worked with them.

     

    We continue our tradition of encouraging artists to express themselves in ways unthought-of previously. Dedicated to the propagation of all art forms, supporting local, international, emerging or established artists and community arts programs. Now planning an ongoing schedule of exhibits, competitions and produce editions of wide format of events that focus on the benefit of the artists, local businesses, sponsors, and the social community.

    Learn Backyard Composting 101 (Free Seminar)

    Learn Backyard Composting 101 at Upcoming Free Seminars Scheduled Throughout Cuyahoga County.

     

    Composting-made-easy is the theme of the Cuyahoga County Solid Waste District's 2018 composting seminars and bin sales taking place at local municipalities throughout the spring and summer.

     

    The informative seminars are designed to teach residents how to properly compost yard waste and food scraps in their backyards while offering low-cost compost bins for sale. Backyard composting helps reduce the amount of organic waste sent to landfills while creating a healthy soil additive that can be used in gardens and landscapes.

     

    About:

    Compost seminars are open to all county residents and registration is required.

    To register for a seminar visit http://www.cuyahogarecycles.org/compost_workshops_and_bins or call (216) 443-3731 ☎.

     

    What is compost? Compost consists of organic materials derived from plants and some animal material that has been decomposed largely through aerobic decomposition (with oxygen). The process of composting is simple and is practiced by individuals in their homes, farmers on their land and by industries and cities through contracts with composting businesses.

     

    Compost is rich in nutrients. It is used in gardens, landscaping, horticulture and agriculture. The compost itself is beneficial for the land in many ways, including as a soil conditioner, a fertilizer to add vital humus or humic acids, and as a natural pesticide for soil. In ecosystems, compost is useful for erosion control, land and stream reclamation and wetland construction.

     

    The following items are available for purchase by cash or check only:

    Wishing Well Composter - $50.00
    Ultimate Dirt Machine Digester - $50.00
    Yard Butler (aeration tool) - $20.00
