UK Creative Community Fellows alum Rosalind Allen embarked on a sabbatical in the US this past fall to learn about the different approaches that organizations take to connect families with nature.

Discover her experiences in this thoughtful blog she shared with the Children & Nature Network.

“Gardening can help deepen people’s connection with nature.”

In our guest column by Rosalind Allen of the RSPB, Rosalind explores the opportunities that come with empty plots and abandoned parks. Organizations such as the Greater Newark Conservancy, BLISS Meadows, Detroit Audubon and The Elizabeth Conservancy see possibilities in these vacant spaces, transforming the places into gardens, farms, and native meadows that teem with life.
