Cleveland, Ohio Seed
« Reply #15 on: May 19, 2005, 01:10:00 AM »
I was in the Ohio Seed.  I was there in 75' I stayed with it religeously and then when they moved I graduated High School early and moved down to Florida two days after I turned eighteen.  I lived there in the condos with the other girls until told to leave.  In Ohio there were softball games that were a blast, and then when it got dark Art had installed flood lights and we played football with a ball painted white.  There was a room downstairs where we very occasionally, and rarely boxed and a few times he did group hypnosis on us.  I don't think it ever worked.  He was pretty full of himself.LOL  I have a copy somewhere of the article but would be hard pressed to dig it out.  I was interviewed but refused to comment as told by the staff.  one thing I remember about it was that it focused on a boy who killed himself...something to do with electric lines.

i was also in the seed in cleveland from sept of 77 to feb/march 78. i graduated the program & to this day call the program "the worst experience of my life". soon after graduating,the cleve plain dealer did a story on the seed & within 24 to 48 hrs,they were gone & the building was empty.we did have some boxing & occasionally softball but only when art was in town.as stated by another poster here,those were the best times due to being able to actually be somewhat normal for a few hours.i would be interested in speaking with other cleveland based "seedlings". i promise we wouldnt sing or tell each other that we love each other. contact me through this site or direct to my e-mail.   [email protected]

actually in regards to the young man who died on the electric lines,his name was mark.[obviously i will not tell his last name].we hung out a lot after we both graduated from the seed. he had been teaching me how to play chess just days before he died. he was showing off for a group of people & climbed a tower at an electrical substation in lakewood, ohio. he reached out & grabbed a high tension wire & died instantly. i ran into his mother a few years later while i was working.she gave me a huge hug & said she missed him everyday & thanked me for remembering him & also for recognizing her & talking to her about mark.

I  have been looking forever for information on the seed in cleveland.  I was there in 76/77.  I had five other members of my family that were there over a few years.  I lived in Illinois and was moved there along with brother.  We were both there for a year and then graduated and sent back to finish high school at our original high school in Illinois.  I am still foggy about the details of my year there.  Have many thoughts negative and only a few positive.  My brother passed away last year due to acute alcholism.  He graduated from the seed after a year and never healed.  I would love to hear from others from the seed in cleveland and hear your opinions, etc.  How did most fair?  What happened to the cleveland seed?  Out of the five family members all but 1 had serious drug/psyc/alcohol problems since.

I was in Cleveland Seed in 76/77 and I was 16.   Most were minors.  Where you at the Seed?  Thank you for the Information!

The Cleveland Seed definitely had minors, and a few parents went to Ft. Lauderdale when they closed to set up apartments for them.
I was at the Cleveland seed for a couple of months and participated in the move while on the program.  

There is other info about it on the forum.

To remember the good times of winter and not the hardship of the cold and lack of sun.

I don't think that was the answer you were looking for. :|
