0616_blog_food1Thanks to the new non-profit Oak Park Sol, a neighborhood is bringing nature back to its city-dwelling folks.

“Most Americans, at 95 percent, live in urban areas, according to the U.S. Census. More than half of people over age 6 don’t spend time participating in outdoor recreation, according to Conservation Horizons, a report by a California Council of Land Trusts’ Initiative. Kids exposed to the outdoors, according to the Child Mind Institute, are smarter, happier and less anxious. Yet, you don’t have to be a kid to experience this type of respite.”
