The Garden of Eleven Angels was created to bring healing and closure for the residents of Imperial Avenue and the families of 11 women murdered on the block by convicted serial killer Anthony Sowell. Western Reserve Land Conservancy, Burton, Bell, Carr Development, Inc. LAND Studio, and a host of other local organizations led the effort to acquire and demolish the site of Sowell’s home and other adjacent properties to create a space comprising eight parcels in total. Construction on the site began in July of 2021 and there are currently around 50 trees on the site. Join us to plant street trees on the site and continue to beautify this space.

Volunteer registration begins at 9:50 AM and the planting demo will begin at 10 AM
Location: 12205 Imperial Ave., Cleveland, OH (street parking is available)
