News and conversations about the growing evidence of the healing power of nature and green development in cities
Today’s Bench Story comes from the journal in the Open Spaces Sacred Places at the Landscape of Resilience: Butterfly Garden and Overlook in Joplin, Missouri. Landscape of Resilience in Joplin was built by survivors of the F5 tornado that hit the town in 2011. #Benchstories are collected from the journals found in all TKF Foundation Open Spaces Sacred Places.

We are a private nonprofit that supports, informs, and inspires the creation of publicly accessible urban green spaces. We believe that every city resident needs nearby green space to provide opportunities for mindfulness, respite, and renewal. The Foundation has issued its final grants to build five Open Spaces Sacred Places and research the impacts on a variety of users with the hope that the powerful connection between nature, spirit and human wellbeing will be scientifically proven.
