Wow! Check out this great article on Lawn Life by Soapbox Media!

Local Cincinnati Soapbox writer Nancy Yerian wrote a fantastic piece on Lawn Life and our founder, Tim Arnold.

Read the full article on their website, and here’s a few of the finer points:

“After winning Social Venture Partners’ Fast Pitch in February, LawnLife recently went to the Philanthropitch International competition in Austin, Tex., where the company was honored as one of the 10 “brightest social innovators” from across the U.S. and Canada.”

It soon grew into a nonprofit organization that works with many other area services to reach young people to employ.”
