About Ron

Edit profile


Ron Finley grows a nourishing food culture in South Central L.A.s food desert by planting the seeds and tools for healthy eating. Finley's vision for a healthy, accessible food forest started with the curbside veggie garden he planted in the strip of dirt in front of his own house. When the city tried to shut it down, Finley's fight gave voice to a larger movement that provides nourishment, empowerment, education -- and healthy, hopeful futures -- one urban garden at a time.
