Ron Finley // Guerilla Gardener

Ted Talks Ron Finley

Ron Finley, a guerilla gardener from South Central Los Angeles, creates a new outlook on food and how it affects one’s lifestyle. It goes beyond health, and reaches children and communities from all over Los Angeles to come together and do something for both the environment and society. Turning run-down sidewalks into beautiful flourishing gardens to feed healthy ingredients and introducing it into a city that revolves around junk and fast food really created a difference in the lives of Ron’s neighbors. Audiences reached beyond South Central as he spoke about his passions to Ted Talks to millions of viewers. This act proved to be very beneficial educationally and health-wise.
