Ron Finley at TED2013

 

Who knew that planting a small edible garden on a tiny plot of city owned land in South Central Los Angeles could become a political tug of war? In an area over populated with fast food restaurants, liquor stores and no fresh food Ron picked up a shovel and got to work on converting his parkway into a food forest. See what happened in his TED 2013 talk "Ron Finley: A guerilla gardener in South Central LA."
