Edited by Lindsay Campbell and Anne Wiesen. Foreword by Oliver Sacks, M.D. Offers a starting point for a multidisciplinary understanding of Restorative Commons. Focuses on open space and its interface with the built environment. Considers sites restorative if they contribute to the health and well-being of individuals, communities, and the landscape. Individual health includes physical, mental, emotional, and social health; community health is considered in terms of rights, empowerment, and neighborhood efficacy; and landscape health is measured by ecosystem function and resilience, all of which act together in a complex web of relationships.
