OTR Homegrown is one of the only tenants on Pleasant St between Liberty and Green in Over The Rhine. Because very few people live on the street our block becomes trashed on a regular basis. We spend a lot of time cleaning the street but over the Winter when we were not there the street accumulated OTRash! This is just one block South of Findlay Market; many people bring their children down our street on their way to the Market.
This clean up is not for the faint of heart. It is really bad. There is a lot of broken glass and bottles angled in the dirt, and trash and clothes scattered throughout the block.
We care about our block, the kids that play on the street could get hurt or stuck with a needle. We care about our community, if people are going to fix the houses then we do not want them seeing the street trashed like this.
We care about the people in our community, people coming into the neighborhood to spend money create jobs and support locally owned businesses. People do not come into trashed neighborhoods.
