Dutch researchers found that city dwellers living near parks and gardens were 25 percent less likely to be diagnosed with depression than those with nary a patch of grass in sight. Study author Jolanda Maas, Ph.D., says that frequent exposure to nature may help people recover from the stress and mental fatigue of urban life.

Then why not go further and leave the city.

“Then why not go further and leave the city.”

Some liked to call it “white flight” into the suburbs from Detroit but much of that was just post-war growth and expansion and if the grass looked a whole lot greener on the other side of the fence then maybe it really was and still is.
