What We Do

Economic Prosperity

We’re collaborating across sectors to bring investment back to the North Avenue Commercial Corridor, employ adults & youth in meaningful green employment, & working to attract housing resources.

Environmental Stewardship

We’re transforming unused spaces into productive gardens, parks & healthy community spaces. We’re addressing lead hazards in backyard gardens & working with neighbors to improve soil quality.

Civic Engagement

We’re creating spaces & opportunity for our neighborhood to participate in caring for our community through workgroups, meetings, events, and programs.

Health & Wellness

We’re supporting a culture of wellness by offering health programs for men and women. We’ve opened the Walnut Way Center to local yoga instructors to offer weekly wellness classes to the community.

“One thing I do that many people don’t get the chance to do or simply just don’t do it is give to my community. I am a part of Walnut Way and always will be. I feel like I’m around family and friends here.”
