Ron Finley: A Guerilla Gardener in South Central LA

Paste a Video URL

I came across this Ted Talks today and thought it was fantastic. There’s nothing like hearing someone who is truly passionate about gardening and who truly understands its importance for motivation.

“Gardening is the most therapeutic and defiant act you can do, especially in the city…plus you get strawberries”

  1. We found this TED Talk recently, too, and as a result, extended our garden with some raised beds just for the kiddos next door to learn how to grow things. šŸ™‚

    Found this blog through the Center for Reconciliation newsletter. And look forward to continued browsing and reading! Blessings to your community.
