Our organization works with various gardens, artists, groups, and you know youth in Walnut Hills looking for a part-time gig? Pay goes up to $12/hr based on job duties. Please contact Community Coordinator Aprina Johnson at or (513) 704-5580

Our organization has partnered with the Walnut Hills Historical Society, Frederick Douglass Elementary, and artist Janet Creekmore to complete a couple different wheatpasting projects on the one-story, blue buildings on Lincoln Ave by Gilbert. The ads pay homage to the Black Business District that once thrived in Walnut Hills, and future projects will aim to celebrate this history even more. Please contact us if you would like to get involved, or have a story of your own about the historic Black Business District!
