Going green: Waterloo Arts to install new green roof and alleyway

Waterloo Arts, a nonprofit organization that provides arts programming and education in the Collinwood neighborhood, is installing a green roof on its building thanks to a green infrastructure grant from the Northeast Ohio Regional Sewer District (NEORSD).

Masses of tall, charming coneflowers and low, dainty larkspur blooms fill Sue Borton’s Collinwood front yard like a sea of vibrant, purple hues, with a teak dragon statue nestled within it all. It took more than 25 years for Borton to transform her garden from a cluster of six flowers into the luscious, self-sufficient garden it is today. “I’ve just always loved plants,” she said. “The people that [garden] love it, and our street has a lot of it.”

The seeds for GardenWalk Cleveland were planted in 2010 when founders Jan Kious and Bobbi Reichtell visited its namesake, GardenWalk Buffalo, a free, self-guided tour of more than 400 urban residential gardens. They enjoyed it so much they decided to bring it here. It springs to life this weekend, when Clevelanders are invited to tour gardens and green spaces in nine city neighborhoods.

Now, as the weather warms and vaccines bring hope back to the communities, plans are being put into action.
