Beautiful Moment: Vitamin "G"
June 16, 2016
The simple act of planting a garden, a tree, or creating a park can have a myriad of benefits in neighborhoods that need it most. There has been a rush of research demonstrating urban greenspace as "essential for health human habitat," from crime reduction to improving mental and physical health. We see this everyday, from more eyes on the street through our Adopt-a-Block program, to neighbors meeting while tending trees planted by volunteers, and even your kids at our KIB clubs soaking up knowledge and sunshine in outdoor classrooms. At KIB we want a tree outside of every front door, and a community greenspace on every block -- so we can all get even a small does of Vitamin "G."
