Study finds that "Cleaning & Greening" helps immensely
See for yourself.
The PHS (Pennsylvania Horticultural Society) and City of Philadelphia have found that this low-cost, high-value strategy in neighborhoods with excess amounts of vacant lots has really improved the overall quality of life among its residents.
This approach has also made neighborhoods safer. The study proves that cleaning and greening helps reduce violence, vandalism, and crime in general.
