The Importance of Plants

In some settings, the natural world has the power to heal human hearts and prevent violence. That statement isn’t based on modern Romanticism, but on a growing body of mainly correlative scientific evidence, most of it with a tight focus on the impact of nearby nature in cities.

Quote of the Month:
