Ron Finley

Nicknamed the “gangster gardener” and the “guerilla gardener,” Ron Finley planted organic vegetables inches away from his South Los Angeles curb and a revolution was started. His belief that “gardens build community” led him to give a TED Talk in 2013 garnering over 300,000 views on YouTube. When he is not away speaking to audiences from Qatar to Watts, you will find Ron Finley with his shovel in the garden. Follow his movement on RonFinley.com.
