A Guerilla Gardener in South Central LA | Ron Finley, TED Talk

Here is a great ten minute TED talk from Ron Finley from March, 2013. This is the exact sort of change the world needs. He also talks about his future plans in relation to his gardening.

"If kids grow kale, they eat kale."

Video Description: 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."
