“This is bigger than my garden. This is bigger than me, period. This problem is systemic,” he says. “It’s all kinds of things from gentrification to food injustice to just a lack of green spaces in certain neighborhoods, and all that is by design. What we’re here to do is change the design.”
~ Ron Finley, The Ron Finley Project, & co-founder of L.A. Green Grounds

** Check out this interview with Ron Finley at Civil Eats, and the Los Angeles Green Grounds site for examples of how community gardens, ‘edible landscapes’, and green spaces are good medicine for local communities.
