City Beat Article on Urban Blooms
Urban Blooms is growing something beautiful in the heart of two Cincinnati neighborhoods. Last Friday, construction began on a 1,500-square-foot living wall at 4912 Reading Rd. in the Bond Hill business district. A similar project will begin in Corryville this fall.
Tyler Wolf, executive director of Urban Blooms, says the organization really wanted to connect its mission of sustainable green living to neighborhood development. The result is the Cincinnati Grows program, a $25,000 matching funds grant that gives neighborhoods the chance to apply for a living wall installation in their community.

It’s creating a healthier living environment—in a physical sense, removing pollutants and particulate matter from your air, but also in a psychological sense,” says Wolf. “Humans perform better when they’re in environments with more plants.”
Style and Sustainability Gala
We are very proud of this 115 Sqft Installation as it is our first chance to display our work in a public setting.
The Style + Sustainability Gala (SSGALA). SSGALA was truly a one-of-a-kind experience that consisted of a “living” runway fashion show, 23 vendors, 60 models, 26 local professional and DAAP designers and an impressive planted robot.
This event serves as an opportunity to educate our community about the issues related to food justice, food insecurity and food waste. Good Food offers an opportunity to gather together an influential group of people in our community to share ideas and build with one another.
