Jan 22, 2013: Starting next month, you could have some Cleveland winter lettuce with that sandwich.
That’s when Green City Growers Cooperative, a worker-owned business, expects to harvest its first crops from one of the largest urban greenhouses in the country, a 3 1/4-acre hydroponic operation off East 55th Street in the city’s Central neighborhood.
Mary Donnell, chief executive officer of Green City, said she’s had interest from potential customers, including Heinen’s supermarkets and distributors who supply restaurants and food service operations in Northeast Ohio. Customers will be able to choose from green leaf, butterhead and red lettuces, and a variety of tender herbs.
