TED Thursday: Guerrilla Gardening in South Central Los Angeles

May 23, 2013

“If kids grow kale, kids eat kale. If they grow tomatoes, they eat tomatoes. But when none of this is presented to them, if they’re not shown how food affects the mind and the body, they blindly eat whatever you put in front of them.”

Ron Finley talks about his guerrilla gardening projects. Turning barren wastelands and unused bits of public land into food forests for the people. Legend.
