With the help of the Rid-All Green Partnership, the people of Cleveland's Kinsman neighborhood have transformed an abandoned plot of land into one of the city's most vibrant urban farms. The oasis is a truly local endeavor. The compost that grows the fruits and veggies is made of coffee grounds from area cafes, discarded scraps from local food banks, and wood chips from Cleveland's forestry department. In addition to the greenhouses and hoop-houses that characterize the lot, Ridall has also set up a local fishery that aquafarms tilapias.

When Eric Wells became a professional chef, he fulfilled a long-held promise to his mother, who taught him the art of pairing different ingredients and create new dishes. At Ligali's Bistro, he spans two continents by fusing French and Asian flavors, spawning such inventions as lamb chops marinated in a shiitake-wine reduction and crab cakes topped with a chili thai aioli. He also crafts dishes that celebrate each culture?s food individually, such as the asian peanut noodles and the chicken breast proven?al. Chef Eric also fits his dishes into picnic baskets, which diners can take across the street to Lincoln Park for a savory meal or an epic food fight.

It is no secret that Cleveland native, autodidactic historian, and self-proclaimed people person Karl C. Johnson loves his city. After learning everything there is to know about the Sixth City's rich history, he decided to put his newfound knowledge to use by crafting his own distinctive tours that replace standard architectural jargon with vibrant yarns involving history, politics, and personal experiences. He leads his jaunts on segways, buses, limousines, or on foot. During segway tours, Karl gives his guests a choice in the amount of narration he performs, from moderately narrated tours that cover more ground to fully narrated tours that progress more slowly. If guests prefer to travel by bus or automobile, Karl will highlight specific areas of the city that his guests desire to see, such as Public Square or the rack where they hang the key to the city.
