Click here for your free Fat-Burning Kit: Can a tomato change a child’s life? “Yes,” says artist and designer Ron Finley, also known as the Gangsta Gardener. Ron lives in South Central Los Angeles and quips that it’s “home of drive-thrus and drive-bys.” But Ron wanted to change that. A few years ago, Ron planted a curbside garden in the strip of soil in front of his house in LA. The city tried to shut it down. So Ron accidentally started a revolution and changed the game of urban gardening. Now he’s teaching others to grow real food in urban landscapes and it’s transforming “food deserts” into “food forests”… one garden at a time.

    Very inspiring. I don't understand the concept of "food deserts"…..I don't think we have them. We have lots of fast food places, but all parts of the city have grocery stores and even specialty / health food stores within a reasonable drive (or short bus drive). We have shorter growing seasons up north and our food prices are much higher than the US, but it costs the same to eat healthier food as it does to eat convenience food. Many people have backyard gardens in the city.
