Ron Finley came to speak – he’s a guerrilla gardener, a planter of food forests in abandoned lots, along curbs and traffic medians in south central LA. I got the chance to hang out and chat with him at the end of the evening, after scribbling notes on scraps of paper as he spoke. (Highlights: “Growing your own food is like printing your own money.” “The soil is my canvas.” “If you ain’t a gardener, you ain’t a gangsta.” “Just grow some shit.”)
Since I didn’t cook, I thought I’d share his TED Talk – it makes for good bedtime watching for anyone eager to get into the back yard and start digging.
