CLEVELAND — Come this time next year, a dilapidated stretch of property along Detroit Avenue on Cleveland’s west side will be reborn as a 1.5-acre community fruit orchard.

Cudell Improvement, Inc. participated in a national contest held by Edy’s Fruit Bars, in collaboration with the Fruit Tree Planting Association, to award winning recipients with a community orchard.

Prize

On Aug. 1, Cudell Improvement, Inc. was awarded a fruit orchard and technical assistance for transforming the land and determining the best fruit trees for the soil.

In April, a handful of local sites were in the competition, but Cudell Improvement, Inc. remained the only Ohio entry in the final weeks of voting. Cudell Improvement came in fourth place in the national voting. All top five vote getters were awarded an orchard.

Cudell Improvement, Inc. will kick off the orchard with a planting day Aug. 30.
