Ron Finley: A guerilla gardener in South Central LA

This is one of the best TED Talks I have ever seen. Guerrilla gardening is fascinating to me, and it is so inspiring to see the solutions it brings to the problems caused by a toxic food environment and poverty.

City governments own huge amounts of unused, uncultivated land, but by reclaiming the land for food production, people who struggle to eat healthy can be fed.

The power is in the hands of the gardeners and community to alleviate these problems, and all you have to do is get your hands a little dirty.
