Guerrilla Gardening in South Central

"GARDENING IS MY GRAFFITI

Ron Finley is a Los Angeles-based designer who started the DROPDEAD Collextion in the garage of his family home, growing it into a clothing label stocked in Nordstrom and Saks Fifth Ave.

There’s more to Ron than his clothing company though, as he’s also one of the founders of LA Green Grounds. It’s an organization that helps residents of South LA transform their backyards into vegetable gardens. It all started when Ron found it nearly impossible to purchase healthy foods in his neighborhood, which inspired him to start growing his own produce. As he says, "South Central Los Angeles [is the] home of the drive-thru and the drive-by. Funny thing is, the drive-thrus are killing more people than the drive-bys.”

Find out more about LA Green Grounds in the TED video above, and peep the artwork by the Seventh Letter homie RETNA in the background, around 4:44.
