Another Gardener Making a Difference

Ron Finley, a Los Angeles artist, plants vegetable gardens in areas such as along the strip between the sidewalk and the curb. For him, it is an act of rebellion and a way to show his neighbors they can take charge of their healthy eating.

“Growing your own food is like printing your own money,” he said in the following TED video. And it’s a way to create beauty, health, and foster well-being in a society where “the drive-thrus are killing more people than the drive-bys.”

Check out how one gardener is changing the way his neighbors eat.
