We often hurry on the streets, next to parks, among the planted areas of the city without giving them too much importance, perhaps careless or worried about daily worries, most of us do not pay attention to the oases of greenery and trees except when they are cut and replaced by built areas. This study sets out a new way of developing the green spaces, centered on the citizen, wishing to become a way for cities to cope with climate change, food and nutritional security, biodiversity management and human prosperity. The purpose of the present work was to find and implement a tool for the sustainable recovery of degraded lands, by using landscaping that includes spaces dedicated to urban fruit growing orchards. The study was conducted between 2016-2019 and represents a multidisciplinary approach, which took into consideration as many aspects as environment, economic, social, horticultural and biological. The horticultural part is characterized by a great biodiversity and is dominated by fruit growing species. As for the degraded area in which urban orchards are located, they could be the hope of having safe spaces, of improving the landscape, as well as another form of social inclusion. The most important benefits from a social point of view are the maintenance of public spaces at a low cost, the social inclusion, the economy of saving food and the short chain, while under the environmental aspect, the protection of biodiversity and the safety of health become important.
