The first plant clinic in the Tehran was established in 1996 in the region 14 with emphasize on identifying and combating plant pests, increasing the knowledge of residence about green spaces and promoting their participations in protection of green space. In these clinics, classes are being held free and participants are being educated about different subjects in green spaces and residential gardening. Evidence shows that even small efforts to increase the knowledge of urban residence about the importance of green spaces can have big results. Therefore, it is necessary to remove the impediments faced by urban population and provide basic information in urban areas to enable the spread of green spaces.
