The Gangsta Gardener
Los Angeles

Ron Finley is a community worker from Los Angeles. He dreams of a world where gardening is ‘gangsta’, where cool kids know their nutrition and where communities embrace the act of growing. Ron: “I got tired of driving 45 minutes to get an apple that was impregnated with pesticides”. Now he turns vacant lots into edible gardens and inspires us all to do the same through his Ron Finley project.
