The Wellness Garden

The Wellness Garden Labyrinth

“...all flourishing is mutual.” - Robin Wall Kimmerer

About this project:

To spark the imagination of the collective towards the rewilding of urban spaces while creating a much needed greenspace for community and education in Camp Washington, interdisciplinary artist, Ecologist, and resident artist Julia Orquera Bianco partnered with local nonprofit The Well, and The Well-landlord Sean Mullaney (Campsite Sculpture park), to create The Wellness Garden.

This space is becoming an urban nature and contemplation corridor for public use that connects Colerain Ave. and Henshaw St. through an accessible, wandering pathway. This pathway will be surrounded by spaces for pause and contemplation. This pathway will be adjacent to and connected to The Well’s Planet Love mural and pocket park, designed and installed in 2023 as part of a partnership between ArtWorks’ seasonal youth employment program and The Well with the collaboration of Keep Cincinnati Beautiful.

Our three main areas of need:

MATERIALS AND SUPPLIES to build an accessible pathway: 

Thanks to collective brainstorming and problem-solving, we were able to significantly lower the cost to build an ADA accessible pathway - from around $10K to $3K. Still, we need you help!

History:

Camp Washington is a neighborhood in Cincinnati with a complex economic, environmental, and cultural history. By the end of the 19th century, this neighborhood had established itself as an industrial center, where manufacturing grew consistently and helped American families weather the Great Depression. However, in the 1970’s the neighborhood started suffering a transformation due to deindustrialization that involved the emigration to a large portion of its neighbors. Today, only 10% of its peak population lives in Camp Washington.

The years of substantial industrial growth left scars with deep environmental costs to the neighborhood: according to the City of Cincinnati Neighborhood Profile, Camp Washington has 0.7% tree canopy cover (ranked 47th of all 52 neighborhoods of Cincinnati), and is ranked 49th for percent of land in parks and greenspaces (roughly 1%).
