Pirate Gardening

This is an incredible TED talk by Ron Finley, a guerilla gardener in South Central L.A.  His mission is to turn vacant lots and strips of land in the 'food desert' of South Central into bountiful food gardens that are available to everyone.  Similar to the mission of the Durham worker owned collective, 'Bountiful Backyards'.  I love when he says 'growing your own food is like printing your own money'.  It's so true!  Food prices are incredibly high, mostly because we are shipping our food everywhere.  In places like South Central there are almost no healthy food options.  We are passionate about this issue, please take a moment to watch the video. Enjoy!
