When kids grow kale, kids eat kale

Ron Finely delivers his heartfelt passion for growing your own food & transforming communities in the process, by reducing obesity and other preventable diseases.

In a refreshingly raw and inspiring talk, Ron Finley tells use how he is trying to transform South Central (Los Angeles) into an area filled with urban gardens. His talk is filled with comedy, noting that they need to make gardening sexy, suggesting that kids can become “gangsters” who have shovels as their weapon of choice, and that if people want to discuss helping him with his project, they can forget about doing it in cushy chairs: they need to come down to the garden and help plant him some shit!
