Using Gardens to Fight Guns
Description
Shout out to Charlie Branas from Penn and the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society for proving that greening the city can reduce violence. Plus it's pretty. "Greening vacant lots may make neighborhood residents feel safer and may be associated with reductions in certain gun crimes, according to a new study from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania."
