Ron Finley is a creative phenomenon: a gangsta horticulturalist, with a strong vision for community gardening and changing culture. Nicknamed the “Gangsta Gardener”, Ron Finley planted organic vegetables in the parkway in front of his South Los Angeles home and a revolution was started. Ron’s belief that gardens build communities has blossomed into a quest to change how we eat.
Today Ron’s mission is changing the composition of the soil in communities around the world through The Ron Finley Project. When he is not speaking, you can find him in the garden.
There is no fee or registration required for attendees, however registration and a fee of $40.00 does apply for guests.
Mr. Finley's appearance is also made possible in part by Leichtag Commons.
