Must watch: Ron Finley on TEDTalks
Ron Finley, co-founder of L.A. Green Grounds, is a guerilla gardener who plants vegetable gardens in South Central L.A. wherever he can, such as in abandoned lots, traffic medians and alongside curbs. He is empowered by gardening and explains in an interview with CNN that when you look at the statistics, you see that drive-thrus literally are killing more people than the drive-bys.
Finley hopes to create positive change by starting an urban garden revolution and also writes in a recent op-ed, "We need to take the responsibility to be the creative force in our society. We need to be the gardeners of our society."
We are infatuated with his approach towards creating a revolution through urban gardening. Please check out his featured appearance on TEDTalks.
