Last Words

In 1930s London, parents made up for a lack of garden space by suspending infants high outside tenements in wire cages. (See other such inventions here.)

"Kids with more experience in nature, even if it's just a view from their room of a natural landscape, are more psychologically resilient."

— Richard Louv, author of Last Child in the Woods: Saving Our Children From Nature-Deficit Disorder, quoted in Plenty magazine
