Book Description:

Both comprehensive and informative, this publication adds immeasurably to the growing interest in the health-giving properties of green space to enhance liveable, sustainable cities. Covering design from school grounds to public parks, from public housing to private gardens, this richly illustrated text builds the case for including green spaces throughout our urban environments......It is refreshing to see coverage not just of the health benefits of urban green space but how interventions - large and small - provide social and economic benefits to communities. This is a rare, inclusive approach to thinking about how green nature can support us in our homes, neighbourhoods, schools, workplaces and healthcare facilities......This book is a rich and welcome addition to the debate.
