The Importance of Plants

Urban nature projects can have positive impacts on health, as quantified in Atlanta, Georgia. The Beltline there is a trails, park, and transit project that reuses a loop of abandoned rail line near the city center. A Health Impact Assessment showed the Beltline has a positive affect on the health of residents through increasing physical activity, access to green space, greater transit use, and social equity.

Quote of the Month:  

"No matter what your motive—whether to grow healthy, delicious food; spend time outdoors feeling more alive than your desk job allows; help save the planet; find relaxation, solace, or healing; meet your neighbors; get your hands in the sweet earth; or discover for yourself just how abundant and generous nature can be—a garden rarely disappoints."-- Jane Shellenberger, author, Organic Gardener's Companion
