Ron Finley

Dear Friends,
Meet Ron Finley, without a doubt the most inspirational and awe-inspiring man (other than my Judd, of course!) that I've learned of in a long while!  Rather than attempting to tell his story in my own words, I'll let his TED Talk and Webpage speak for itself.  Please watch!  

“Growing your own food is like printing your own money.”
“Gardening is the most therapeutic and defiant act you can do, especially in the inner city. Plus, you get strawberries.”
“If kids grow kale, kids eat kale. If they grow tomatoes, they eat tomatoes.”
“We gotta flip the script on what a gangsta is — if you ain’t a gardener, you ain’t gangsta.”
