    The greening of urban areas via new urban forms has multiple potential benefits for health and wellbeing, both at individual and community levels. The development of new neighbourhood environments incorporating community gardens, urban orchards and other such initiatives also enables an increase in social capital and is part of a broader movement to provide access to nature. Forward thinking urban planning would allow urban agriculture and local food production to be a source of inspiration for people seeking to act now to create more resilient communities and food production systems in response to climate change. We need a broad vision to make this happen and this can start with a better understanding of the relationship between cities and natural environments.
