We as society can create incredible beauty. Parks are example of the beauty we can create in this world using plats and trees.

Parks are also an example of planting techniques and inspiration models for us all. The fact that a lot of parks are free for public is also a positive aspect.

Parks that integrate nature plants and trees inspire relax and help us to create a better world.

The parks themselves are a positive aspect that human society can model to create or recreate the ideal universe.

Plants themselves can be a touristic attraction.

An example of such an attraction in Epcot Park at Disney World

The Land is the name of a pavilion that sits on the western side of “Future World”, one of two themed areas of Epcot, a theme park at the Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Florida USA. It opened on October 1, 1982, as part of the Phase I features for the grand opening of what was then known as EPCOT Center.

“The Land” is a 24 hectare (2.5 million square foot)facility dedicated to human interaction with the land itself. It explores how humans can both use the land for their benefit, and how they can also destroy it. Future Technology in better preserving the land is also explored in the pavilion, along with a focus on the celebration of the land itself.

Horticulture research

In addition to being an entertainment venue, “The Land” is also a demonstration, production, and research facility. 43,000 ft² (0.4 hectares) of the pavilion are dedicated to experimental horticulture techniques in hydroponics, irrigation methods, and integrated pest management.

EPCOT Center, although often referred to as a permanent world’s fair, because of having pavilions devoted to new technology and world cultures, was never sanctioned as a world’s fair by the agency that does such things, the Bureau of International Expositions (BIE) in Paris.

If you’re enjoying fresh vegetables more than 30 tons of fruits and veggies were harvested from The Land pavilion’s greenhouses.

Disney thought that education and research on the future could be advanced greatly if the world could “come into the research university” and see how things are thought up first-hand.

672  715

He envisioned that people would pay money — not just to see this; but also to experience it through what he envisioned as the “Disney University” — not a physical structure, but the world’s first virtual university — pulled together within the Communication Core structure (where Innoventions is now situated).

701   726

The Communications Core according to Disney was to have on-site conference and classrooms — a center for educators who would visit Epcot.

700     714

The concept of EPCOT as a working virtual university of the best and brightest from around the world has always intrigued me.

713

Especially because Walt had the insight to recognize that the Corporate World had to be involved in the vision as well. Walt died before EPCOT was completed.

946

His brother Roy, an accountant by training, never shared Walt’s utopian vision for Florida. He saw it as a money losing proposition that would have buried the Disney empire.

933

What would have happened if Walt had stayed alive long to see EPCOT completed and the first graduating class from his university concept?

804

What would happen if every school would have a such park where students will learn to plant beautiful gardens and trees and the beauty of garden design will be integrated with learning process.

784

A student built and maintained park would be integrated with plant research and learning. An architecture park design competition between classes.

792 The chance is that the school landscape would be a better place for everyone.
