Although its never been stated openly, I think the work that Kate is doing to promote going back to nature and enjoying the great outdoors is also a great incentive that aids and abets the mental health campaign. Put down the devices and forget social media and instead of reading about what shape the planet is online, get out there and actually enjoy the beauty of our planet.

I think we all should do this more. Now my dog is on the wrong side of the door again and I'll hug a tree while I'm out there. Of course my dog is thinking "too many trees, so little time" (I live in a forest)

“The Duchess of Cambridge has opened a new 'Back to Nature' garden for children.”

“The Duchess designed the garden, in Surrey, to encourage children to play and explore in nature.”

“Earlier this year, Prince George visited his mother’s Back to Nature Garden at The Chelsea Flower Show and rated it a 20 out of 10.”

“Bees are disappearing in our own backyards. But we don’t have to sit back and accept a world without these amazing little creatures. Whoever you are and wherever you live, there’s something you can do to help #SaveTheBees.”

“The @BackyardNatUK campaign, backed by The Duchess of Cambridge, aims to plant 15 million seeds in the UK to halt the sharp decline in bee population”

Well, it is not so easy. Re-natured gardens instead of simple green lawns are a pleasure ground for ticks(?), these borreliosis/"Lyme disease" carrying, disgusting creatures. You can't have the kids playing there.

But Princess Kate is right: Something has to be done!

Kids all over the U.S. play in yards with ticks with very little issue...it can be managed.

The bee issue is more complex than just planting seeds.

She's actually Princess William not Princess Kate ...there is no such title for her :)

Besides vaccination having the kids in long sleeves and trousers/tights is most often enough to keep them reasonably safe.
I agree that the question of bees disappearing is a complicated one but Kate's suggestion is one part of trying to alleviate the problem

Yes, native flowers, forgoing the use of pesticides (huge part), encouraging new beekeepers, educating the public ..just a few ways to help.

Ticks are attracted to cool shaded, damp places. Mainly found in densely wooded places but also things like wood piles.

This initiative is not talking about building forests in your backyard. Its about planting wildflowers in your garden. Wildflowers attract bees and offer them a source of food. This isnt the kind of plant life which will bring ticks into your yard.

They are handing out seedballs of wildlife flowers, not planting forests for kids.

Of course things like pesticides, and more bee farmers needs to be addressed, but this is a good start.
