More than most interactions with nature, gardening occurs in a social context. A garden can facilitate social interaction and a sense of community (Robbins et al., 2001). This is also a great way to break all territorial issues as well as privacy concerns. The stress that comes from the urban life can open a new way of living through different attractions in the city that can create interactions with other people. There are many people who have connections with nature that not only does a park or garden help but even seeing animals can help people who are having issues with their lifestyle the daily stressors of the urban city lifestyle.
