A Guerilla Gardener in Los Angeles

Ron Finley woont in het zuiden van Los Angeles en is daar begonnen om stukken ongebruikt groen vol te zetten met eetbare planten. Een opbeurend en positief verhaal over de kracht van planten en hoe dat de gemeenschap weer bij elkaar brengt. Van food deserts naar food forests aldus Finley.

En recent legde hij zijn verhaal ook uit bij TED

Ron Finley plants vegetable gardens in South Central LA — in abandoned lots, traffic medians, along the curbs. Why? For fun, for defiance, for beauty and to offer some alternative to fast food in a community where “the drive-thrus are killing more people than the drive-bys.”

Ron Finley grows a nourishing food culture in South Central L.A.’s food desert by planting the seeds and tools for healthy eating.
