NEAP’s searchable, interactive maps visually display specific data sets in a geographic context. All of the maps below start with a basic map of Cuyahoga County. On top of that are layers of information about a specific community asset, for instance the location of community gardens, or a specific community quality, such as educational attainment.
NEAP Community Gardens Map (2015)
The Ohio State University Extension program manages most community gardens throughout Cuyahoga County, providing new and established gardeners with free seeds, tools, and education. Most community gardens are located within the City of Cleveland, with suburban gardens constituting 35% of all OSU Extension-sponsored gardens. Community gardens differ in important ways based on history, focus of the sponsoring organization, and interests of current community members.
NEAP Farmers' Markets Map (2015)
The Community Food Guide of the Food Policy Coalition provides educational booklets with tips, activities, Ohio-grown fruit and vegetables, and location and details of farmer markets throughout Cuyahoga County. In partnership with Ohio State University’s Extension program, we make the farmers’ market details available in a simple, searchable map. Here you will learn which farmers’ market accepts electronic benefit transfers (EBT) and what foods you can expect to find at the market closest to you.
