LA guerrilla gardener Ron Finley turns food deserts into oases
Finley still works with LA Green Grounds to plant fresh food in accessible, but unused areas in the city. The response from the community has been overwhelmingly positive, especially from enthusiastic children who have previously had little experience with fresh fruits and vegetables. Finley estimates the organization has helped plant around 20 gardens , and counting. Considering Los Angeles alone has 26 square miles of vacant lots, he says there is still much work to be done.
