TED Talk: A Guerrilla Gardener in South Central LA

Posted on

One of the reasons we decided to build a company around raised beds is the application they have for Urban Gardening. As long as sun can find a surface, and soil can be set, a garden can grow. Ron Finley is an inspirational community activist, artist, and guerilla gardener, and if any of those things interest you please watch his recent TED Talk video:

One of the many poetic and practical gems to come out of this talk:

“Gardening is my graffiti, I grow my art. Just like a graffiti artist, where they beautify walls, me, I beautify lawns, parkways. I use the garden – the soil, like it’s a piece of cloth. And the plants and the trees, that’s my embellishment for the cloth. You’d be surprised what the soil could do if you let it be your canvas.”
