Living with Beauty: Reconnecting City Children with Nature

Two million trees may be planted in UK cities and towns under a new development and planning framework that calls for a ‘fast track for beauty.’ An independent commission set up to advise the UK government on how to promote and increase the use of high-quality design for new homes and neighborhoods made the recommendation in a new report. One of the suggestions the report makes is the planting of ‘one fruit tree per house’ as well as the introduction of orchards in cities and urban areas to reconnect children with nature and their food.
