A local elementary school that transformed their rooftop into a thriving garden that gives their students a green thumb through fun activities.

 

Rothenberg Rooftop School Garden is a non profit organization provides hands-on, garden-based lessons and activities.

Most rooftops, especially in an urban setting, are forgotten, unused space. But high atop the Rothenberg Preparatory Academy in OTR, there’s a lush garden that not only feeds its students, but it teaches them to garden, too.

Rothenberg Rooftop School Garden is a non profit organization on the roof of the historic Rothenberg Preparatory Academy, which is a Cincinnati Public Elementary School. “It provides hands-on garden based lessons and activities to the children and families of Rothenberg Preparatory Academy, and the greater community,” Bryna Bass, Garden Education Coordinator, says. “As an enrichment program, we support the teaching staff by facilitating lessons that meet academic standards across the curriculum, grades preK-6.”

The garden is about to enter its fifth year serving the students at Rothenberg. “Our first year, 2013, the actual outdoor classroom wasn’t completely constructed and we worked with teachers and students, providing garden-themed academic enrichment in the classrooms,” Bass says. “In 2014, we were able to bring everyone onto the roof and into the garden.”

The inspiration for the garden was “championed” by a local activist, Edwin “Pope” Coleman of the Over The Rhine Foundation. “He was inspired by Granny’s Garden in Loveland. His vision was for the children of OTR to have a garden at their neighborhood school,” Bass says. “The Over The Rhine Foundation took on the project and started raising the monies to make it happen. Rose Seeger of Green City Resources and Frank Russell of UC Community Design Center created the design for the outdoor classroom and garden. Sadly, we had to say our ‘goodbyes’ to Pope, who died July 4, 2017.”

There are so many benefits from having a garden. Rothenberg is an urban school that’s in a neighborhood that is growing and developing quickly, and there isn’t much green space to for the kids to explore nature. “The rooftop garden is a safe space where the kiddos can develop a sense of wonder as they watch a seed grow into a plant, chase a butterfly from flower to flower, and make deep observations of the natural world,” she says. “Flowers and edible plants are grown in the garden. Children take in the beauty of a flower, develop a greater understanding of why that flower is an important part of an ecosystem, and eat a strawberry, all during one class session. We like to think of the garden as a classroom-not all classrooms have four walls. We also have a Reading Garden-a covered sitting area surrounded by flower pots-where people can comfortably sit, reflect and read.”

There is so much that goes into taking care of the garden, such as 35 raised beds and 25 oversized planters that cover approximately 3000 square feet on the roof. “The garden is managed by Julie Singer, but the children also spend a great deal of time in the garden planting, maintaining, and harvesting—performing a variety of duties that allow them to have ownership of the space,” Bass says. “Watering is done by hand. We incorporate integrated pest management techniques, use organic fertilizers, and pull the weeds by hand.”

This garden and Rothenberg Preparatory Academy help the community. “A strong school is good for the neighborhood and the garden helps to make RPA a strong school. The greater community is invited into the garden (school) through volunteer opportunities and programs. It is a source of pride, not only for the school but for the community.”

Bass’ favorite part of working on the garden is being with the children. “Being able to introduce children to the wonders of the garden is by far the most exciting thing for me,” she says. “Also, I get to work on a roof, in a garden, with kiddos. It’s awesome!”

The Rothenberg Rooftop School Garden is located at 241 E Clifton Ave in Cincinnati. To learn more about them, follow along on Facebook or contact Bass at bryna.bass7@gmail.com. “You can come and tour the space. We are always looking for volunteers. We also present to groups,” Bass says.

Learn about the dynamic healthcare duo that’s now offering a revolutionary same-day total hip replacement outpatient surgery option.

 

St. Elizabeth and OrthoCincy now offer same day total hip replacement surgery

St. Elizabeth and OrthoCincy’s Dr. Grunkemeyer now offer same day total hip replacement as one of our many outpatient orthopedic surgery options. At the forefront of orthopedics, we provide surgical innovations including same day outpatient joint replacement procedures that offer a faster recovery time.

When you choose the St. Elizabeth Total Joint Center, you receive the most advanced orthopedic care and in some cases you can return to the comfort of your home rather than staying overnight in the hospital following joint replacement surgery. 

Total hip replacement is a minimally invasive surgery that involves removing the damaged hip and replacing it with a hip prosthesis. This surgery helps relieve the grinding between the two surfaces of the ball and joint in patients with chronic hip arthritis so they are able to walk without pain.

Can I have same day total hip replacement?

Not everyone who needs hip replacement surgery is a candidate for same day total hip replacement. You may be a candidate if you meet certain clinical criteria, are motivated to return home the same day, and have a home environment conductive to a healthy recovery.

Benefits of same day surgery

The number one benefit of same day total hip replacement is that you can plan to return to the comfort of your home after surgery, rather than staying overnight in the hospital.

We also offer:

  • A minimally invasive, anterior (front) approach to the surgery, resulting in less pain and shorter recovery time.
  • Spinal anesthesia, which helps you avoid the use of a breathing tube and possible pulmonary complications associated with general anesthetic.

To find out more about same day total hip replacement or to make an appointment with Dr. Grunkemeyer at OrthoCincy, please call (859) 301-2663 (BONE), or request an appointment.

Read on to learn about a business in the Cincinnati area that helps you to truly experience healing.

 

Eva Borho, Owner of Ascension Holistic Healing

Need to experience healing, but “traditional” methods aren’t cutting it? “Ascension Holistic Healing is a place where clients can receive intuitively guided life coaching sessions, reiki, and oracle card readings,” Eva Borho, Intuitive Life Coach, says. The business started when Borho offered free reiki sessions. “Through those free sessions and the intuitive guidance I gave to people, I could see the need to officially start Ascension Holistic Healing, “ she says. “When I moved to Amberley Village in 2016, I officially opened the doors for clients.”

When Borho started giving her free reiki sessions, she saw that many people need help in different parts of their lives. “Some people just require the relaxation reiki provides. Other people just need a nudge to know that what they want to do in life is possible or they want help to figure out how to manifest it,” Borho says. “A lot of people just feel stuck in some way. Reiki helps people see beyond received limitations and become ‘unstuck.’”

The name of the business came from the word ascension, which means “the act of rising to an important position or a higher level,” she says. “My goal when I coach a client is to help them reach a higher level of whatever aspect of life they choose.” When Borho decides to work with a client on a specific life issue, it takes a while for the process to unfold. “We approach the situation from a holistic perspective to bring healing into their life,” she says. “I want them to be the best version of themselves they can be at this time.”

Ascension Holistic Healing offers a few different services. The business offers intuitive life coaching and reiki sessions. “Reiki is a Japanese relaxation technique which often provides health and wellness benefits, in addition to a sense of relaxation. For a typical reiki session, the client remains completely clothed only removing their shoes to lay on a treatment table,” she says. “Depending on the comfort level of the client, reiki is given by the gentle laying of hands or the practitioner can hover their hands over the treatment areas.”

The business is such an important part of the community. “With the fast-paced world we all live in, the more people make time to relax, the better they will feel,” Borho says. “Making an appointment to take care of yourself is always a good use of time.”

Borho loves Ascension Holistic Healing because of the flexibility and the freedom to serve people her way. “With my extensive knowledge of self-care and self-help, I can offer individualized solutions for clients’ everyday needs,” she says. Borho comes back every day because she loves to see the progress of her clients. Helping people better their lives is always great to see,” she says.

If you want to keep up with what Ascension Holistic Healing is doing, you can email them at info@ascensionhealingnow.com or follow their blog at: https://ascensionhealingnow.com. You can also follow them on Facebook. If you want to follow Eva Borho individually, you can check her out on Instagram and Twitter.

Keep reading to learn about a local expert who specializes in helping people follow through with their goals for health and wellness.

Lindsey House is a local health coach who wants people to reach their health goals.

Do you want to lose weight, but need some guidance and someone to keep you accountable? Lindsey House Accountability Coach consists of accountability sessions that are similar to health coaching sessions. “My clients come to me with their own needs (most in the category of ‘I know what to do, I just need to do it.’) We do anything from meal planning, fitness calendars, behavior goals and so much more,” Lindsey House, Health Coach. “Clients walk away with a game plan for the next week or two and then we come back together to assess previous goals and adjust accordingly.”

House has even worked with a branding coach and has built her niche as an accountability coach. “My niche population would tell you they know what to do, they just need to do it,” she says. “I love utilizing Skype and other virtual options to provide my clients with easy scheduling, removing barriers for cancellations and time restraints.”

The inspiration for wanting to start the business is a simple answer for her. “I wanted the flexibility to continue working in a career path of passion. I also wanted to be at the bus stop every morning and afternoon,” House says. “I know it sounds like an over-glamorized view, however, it has been a happy journey so far.”

Her business started from her working for 12 years in the surgical weight loss industry. “I fell in love with outpatient counseling and the idea of getting to follow my patients through their journey to health. Due to family needs and the need of flexibility, I left the hospital to start working from home in 2015,” she says. “I continue to love the world of counseling and feel blessed to be trusted on the journey of health and fitness.”

House offers accountability sessions that are usually an hour long. “We always start with a general health and ‘want’ assessment. At the end of each session, clients are setting their weekly goals and we revisit these goals every week to assess what we need to change,” she says. “It’s a simple formula, but most individuals know what they want to change, they appreciate the accountability to actually make the changes.”

House has a unique relationship with her clients. “I am compassionate and understanding, and I want to wrap my arms around my clients and help them believe in their own success.” She defines the success of her clients by seeing growth in them. “Success is when clients grow in the belief that small changes can equal huge success,” she says. “They might not be hitting precise goals they set, however, they are believing in themselves and their ability to keep working toward a healthy lifestyle and it’s an incredible importance in our quality of life!”

The business is important for the community because it affects every aspect of your life. “In order for us to serve others, we must be healthy enough to take care of ourselves,” House says. “When we have energy and increase moods and increase sleep, we are better able to want to provide extra time and energy to the community.”

If you want to keep up with what Lindsey House Accountability Coach is doing, you can follow them on Facebook. “I provide daily motivational tips and live inspiration every Monday morning at 6:30a.m.”

Our resident sex therapist discusses how changing our space can change our sex life. Keep reading for her four helpful tips.

 

There is nothing like trying to get in the mood and then being distracted by that glaring pile of laundry in the corner and the half empty cups on the night stand. Clutter is not a friend to intimacy- especially for women. One of the chief complaints I hear from my clients is that there are so many things that need to get done, and the to-do list is ticking away in their brains. Making an attempt to be present and receive any sort of pleasure becomes nearly impossible. Now sure, there are tricks to help reduce the noise in your head so you can enjoy intimacy, but what I want to talk about today is creating a sensual space that cultivates intimacy- A pleasure zone in your home!

Declutter
As I mentioned above, clutter is the kryptonite to relaxation. When we can’t relax we can’t be fully present in our experiences. When things appear messy outside of our body, it feels messy inside our brain. Getting into the habit of picking up after yourself throughout the day so that things don’t end up piling up. Or make sure that the clutter is contained-  closets have doors for a reason. Don’t have the time or the energy to do this (I hear ya!)? Invest in a cleaning lady. The going rate for a cleaning lady is $25/ hour. This is not a luxury if it allows you to free up your brain and decrease your anxiety. You deserve it! It doesn’t make you lazy or a failure. It makes you efficient!

Set the Tone
If you are anything like me, you have a very hard time getting any work done if you are in a noisy, stinky, chaotic place. Or, how many of you have shown up to the gym and realize you left your headphones at home. What did you do? You bailed on the workout, of course! This same rule applies for getting in the mood. Light a candle. Dim the lights. Put on some calm sensual music. Brush your teeth. Tune into each of your senses and make sure that you are pleasing all of them.

Turn off screens
Our phones are killing our sex lives. Period. Sitting in bed next to your partner while both of you are scrolling through Instagram is not intimacy. And it is definitely not foreplay. Watching Game of Thrones for an hour and then rolling over and saying, “we should probably have sex” is not hot. Work on setting limits for all screens. We do this for our kids, so why wouldn’t we give ourselves this gift of boundaries. Try going electronic free for one evening a week. See what happens. It is amazing how much time you will free up!

Leave the to-do list outside the bedroom
I am a meditator. I recommend it for everyone- especially those people that “hate it” or “can’t do it” (Sorry guys, you are the ones that need it the most!) But when I began my meditation practice I had a really hard time shutting off my to-do list. My teacher gave me the brilliant idea to right down my to do list before I began my practice so there wasn’t any anxiety around forgetting the things I had to do. This doesn’t solve the issue but it definitely can decrease some of that chatter in your noggin.

“Meditations can help us embrace our worries, our fear, our anger, and that is very healing. We let our own natural capacity for healing do the work.” – Thich Nhat Hanh

Modern living is hectic. Regardless of your background or stage of life, today’s world defined by overstimulation and a constant demand to perform. While it may seem like a paradox, the only way to keep up with the constant hustle and bustle is to, from time to time, learn to step out of the madness. 

Mediation is all about letting go of external stimuli, and looking inward rather than outward for guidance. While life is all about small goals and achievements, mediation is the reverse in the sense that it is about achieving balance and peace in the moment, not reflecting on the past or running towards the future. 

It is precisely because it is against our instinctive behavior that it is so difficult to do, but the following guide can help you successfully meditate and, hopefully, allow you to incorporate a few minutes of solitude into your life every day!

Prioritize Mediation in Your Schedule

While most people can agree that they can’t spare a few minutes to meditate, the fact of the matter is that if you find it important, you can also find time for it. The calm that meditation brings is proven to improve productivity and focus, and once you view it as a time saver rather than waster, you’ll find space for it in your schedule.

If you feel like you’re not willing to give up any of your daily activities then try cutting just a few minutes from your leisure activities. Whether you enjoy playing slots on your iPad from your couch in the evenings, or like to open your favorite book with a glass of wine, try and cut just a few minutes from your fun activities to make space for meditation.

Health and happiness go hand in hand, and once you set as little as 10 to 15 minutes a day, plan it into your schedule and reserve that time for yourself to let go and relax. Mornings are an ideal time for some, whereas evenings or afternoons suit late day starters better.

Designate a Space for Meditation

Once you’ve committed to a certain amount of time to mediate be sure to choose a spot that you perceive as tranquil. This could be outside or inside, depending on where you feel most comfortable. For obvious reasons avoid areas where you are usually active or where there are too many noises or distractions.

While meditation is about letting go of your surroundings, choosing the right area to let go of will make the process a lot easier. Especially for people new to meditating, it is often tempting to open your eyes if you’re in a place where you are usually doing something else. Being comfortable physically is also important, as it makes the process of introspection and letting go of the physical easier.

It May Sound Strange, But Don’t Think of a Goal

In life, we always do things with a purpose or objective, even when that goal is to let go and have fun. When meditating try to avoid this pattern of thinking and don’t stress about letting go. There is no failed meditation session, and each time you try it the easier it will be to find serenity in that short space of time.

Of course, you will be meditating with the goal of relieving stress and improving your well-being, but try not to focus too much on the end-result as you’ll risk the effectiveness of the present activity. Allow your subconscious to work through your thoughts, and the less your consciousness interferes the better.

Learn about a locally-based authentic living expert who creates interior and exterior spaces that are beautiful, healthy, and stylish reflections of the people who inhabit them.

Flourish by Design enhances environments so that you and your community can flourish.

One local lady is inspired by a desire to enhance environments so individuals and communities can experience life and flourish as they are meant to.

That’s why Michelle Andersen launched Flourish by Design seven years ago, and has been dedicated to design, creation and coaching ever since.

Flourish by Design’s office space is located downtown at 1628 on Garfield Avenue, “which is a gorgeous co-working space,” Andersen explains.

The inspiration behind starting the business was her desire to be her own boss. “I envisioned myself as an architect, but during the recession, architects weren’t hiring entry level designers. I started freelancing as a landscape designer and realized that I have a knack for working with clients, and I know I wanted to be my own boss,” Andersen recalls. “I just wanted freedom, and I wanted to be able to be creative. I eventually had enough clients to justify declaring what I was doing as a business.”


To Andersen, Flourish By Design is so much more than a job, though. “I always wanted it to be more than just design and that actually made a lot of sense, now that I’m offering coaching as part of the design. I wanted to have a name that is uplifting and it describes what I help people do, which is to help them feel beautiful,” she says. “I want them to be able to thrive in their lives, not just in their home, but in their life as a whole.”

There are a variety of different services that are offered through Flourish By Design. These options include landscape design and installation, interior design and instillation, private one-on-one transformative coachings, and packages that include both coaching and the design of your home or office.

There are a variety of ways that Flourish By Design defines success in their workplace, but success is truly found when projects are flowing, Anderson says. “We are working with clients that really benefit from what we have to offer, and that is just helping people feel beautiful. We are busy, but not overwhelmed. That is a really successful place to be,” Andersen adds. “It is really important for me to be continuously inspired, so I like to be invested and involved in the current projects, but also looking outward as to what is going to be next, and exciting for Flourish.”

Hope you’re hungry, local vegans and vegetarians! A new personal chef service is delivering vegan/vegetarian twists on popular dishes right to your doorstep.

 

Miss Jessica’s Kitchen offers healthy meals with a vegan and vegetarian twist.

Do you want to experience healthy meals with a vegan and vegetarian twist? Jessica Daniels, Owner of Miss Jessica’s Kitchen, lives in the Over-The-Rhine area, but provides personal chef services to people around the Greater Cincinnati area. ”Miss Jessica’s Kitchen is a personal chef business that delivers vegan/vegetarian twists on popular dishes,” she says. “Long term, I want to own a food truck and explore other avenues for sharing my food with the world.”

In April of 2016, Daniels was living in Columbus. “After getting engaged in December, I moved to Cincinnati to be with my fiancé,” she says. “Since then, I’ve been taking steps to get into the Findlay Kitchen Program and rebuild my business in the Queen City. In the mean time, I’m in charge of the kitchen at We Olive and Wine Bar near Fountain Square.” At the moment, Daniels and her fiancé are working for the business on a part-time basis. “He helps me a lot with the business and marketing aspects, which frees me up to focus on what I do best: cooking and entertaining people,” she says.

Jessica Daniels, Founder of Miss Jessica’s Kitchen

The inspiration behind the business started at the end of her high school career. “I was accepted into culinary school, but my mom, an educator, thought I should take the more traditional path of a four-year college, so I did. But, I never really found a path that satisfied me. Last April, after continued financial stress, my fiancé and I had a conversation that changed my life,” Daniels says. “Like the scene from the movie, The Notebook, he repeatedly asked me, ‘What do you want,’ until finally I blurted out, ‘I just want to cook and make people happy!’”

Within a few hours of having the conversation with he fiancé, she found a possible client on Craigslist, and received her first check for week one of services 24 hours later. “Looking back, I probably skipped some important administrative steps along the way (which have since been rectified), but the ball was in motion,” she says.

There are a variety of services offered at Miss Jessica’s Kitchen.

Personal Chef/Meal Prep: “Great for an individual, couple or family. I prepare the meals for you, so you can save time and still enjoy a home-cooked meal, Daniel says.

Cooking Lessons: “A variation of my personal chef services. I’ll come to you and teach you how to select ingredients, handle kitchenware and prepare a delicious meal for yourself or your loved ones,” she says.

Private Events: “Whether you’re having friends over for a dinner party, or planning a small corporate event. I’ll work with you to plan a wonderful, unique experience,” Daniels says.

Her favorite part of working for Miss Jessica’s Kitchen is how energized and empowered she gets. “There’s no better feeling than helping other people and being rewarded in the process,” she says. “Also, it seems like the more I put myself out there, the more good things keep happening to me, so I’m excited to see where the journey takes me.”

Read on to learn about a Cincinnati-based health food business, spreading approachable and attainable wellness one prepped meal at a time.

 

Midwest Meal Prep is a commissary kitchen based in Newport, Kentucky.

Want to eat healthier but don’t have time for it? A local, health food-focused meal prep business can help with that.

Midwest Meal Prep is based in a commissary kitchen in Newport, Kentucky. “The kitchen is called The Incubator Kitchen and it has been a huge kick start to my business,” Mike Mandell-Brown says, Owner and Founder of Midwest Meal Prep. “It’s a great way for businesses to make the leap from initial inception of concept into production without having to acquire property and such.” Midwest Meal Prep has been in business for two years, and they’ve been in The Incubator Kitchen for one year.

Mandell-Brown brings a college education to his business. “I have been to college for classic French techniques and restaurant management. At the same time, I have worked several years in the field in high volume restaurants crafting my skills as a chef and a leader,” he says. “In 2013, I started my career at PF Changs as a Sous Chef, which helped me learn how to manage people and deal with the stresses and challenges that it presents. Then in 2015, I started a food truck with close friends and have also been doing that ever since.”

The inspiration for the business started in 2013 when Mandell-Brown’s friend approached him about his cooking in 2013. “[My friend] owned a gym and had clients who needed a way to eat better and we sat down and went over some ideas,” Mandell-Brown says. “That was the first time my two passions, cooking and fitness, came together in a harmonious fashion and it just felt right. From there I started coming up with names and such, finally settling on Midwest Meal Prep.”

The target demographic for Midwest Meal Prep has changed over time. “Originally, I was narrow minded in my scope of clients, only focusing on those who were imbedded in the fitness community. Whereas now, we have realized that these services can help not only the aspiring body builder or athlete, but we can help John S who works 9-5, six days a week and just want to eat some healthier foods while trying to balance his life,” Mandell-Brown says. “We feel anyone can start making better life decisions and a great way to start is to be mindful of the foods we put in our bodies, our fuel. It also helps people who need more time in their lives elsewhere and can’t devote two plus hours a week to source food and prepare healthy meals for themselves or family. So, to answer the question, our target demographic is anyone who wants to eat healthy and conveniently while having peace of mind that the food they are eating is flavorful and nutritious.”

There are a variety of services that Midwest Meal Prep offers. There are “weekly meals delivered or dropped off to clients with new and exciting flavors each week. We also offer protein by the pound, vegetables by the pound, or carbohydrates by the pound each week. There are breakfast, lunch and dinner options,” he says.

Midwest Meal Prep is a unique business in the Greater Cincinnati area. “We are set apart with our heightened culinary driven food we offer with a healthy twist,” Mandell-Brown says. “When I sit down and think up new menu options, I try to think of ways to take everyday foodies and make them healthier, for example, our Turkey Mac. We use cottage cheese instead of high fatty American cheese and brown rice noodles for added protein.”

Mandell-Brown’s favorite part of working for Midwest Meal Prep is hearing the input of the customers. “It’s nice to get client feedback after meals have been delivered or see pictures of our food on someone’s social media,” he said. “I’m a chef and I love to cook. This is a great way to mesh that with the health and fitness lifestyle.”

If you want to keep up with what Midwest Meal Prep is doing, follow them on Facebook, Instagram, or their website.
