26.5 Million Americans Live in a Food Desert

It isn’t just small towns and rural areas that need to be reanimated. 

Ron Finley lives in South Central LA where obesity rates are 5 times higher, poverty pervasive and real food practically unavailable. 

Ron says, “the drive-thrus are killing more people than the drive-bys.”

What did LA do? The city cited Ron, and ordered him to remove his gardens–unbelievably, they issued a warrant. 


Because some NIMBY’ite complained!

“Gardening is my graffiti,” Ron responds. “Let soil be your canvas. Become a gangsta gardener…”
