Gardens Build Community

"Gardens build community. Period." says Ron Finley who plants beautiful food producing gardens in South Central Los Angeles.

He describes moments of connection with random neighbors who stop to smell the roses, pick the tomatoes and even contribute plants.

The footage speaks for itself, showing how this simple shift in thinking about the space results in a profound transformation. It brings dignity, beauty, peace and REAL FOOD where there is none.

"They call areas like this throughout the US "food deserts". I thought, why not have food forests?"

Amen Ron Finley! Keep it growing!
