In this TEDtalk, Ron Finley discusses his gardening work in South Central LA, where structural racism has created food deserts, health problems, and other systemic injustices among poor communities of colour. He talks about planting gardens in empty lots, creating farmers markets, putting kids to work, and making gardening sexy.
“To change the community, you have to change the composition of the soil. We are the soil.”
