Urban Gardener Ron Finley

I first learned of Ron Finley, and his mission to transform South Central with community gardening, by way of his appearance on Russell Brand’s “talk show” Brand X.

Turns out his more informative presentation at TED 2013 actually came before that. Definitely worth sharing and especially apropos on the heels of the March Against Monsanto.

His later talk at Santa Monica College allowed him more time to expand on his thoughts, including the sad state of our food system and how growing your own food is not only good for your physical health, but also serves as a buffer against economic hard times.
