From the TED website:
" 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.ís food desert by planting the seeds and tools for healthy eating."
I find this man extraordinary. This 11 minute video is inspiring: www.ted.com/talks/ron_finley_a_guerilla_ga
