Thanks to Corin for sharing this inspirational TED talk from the states. It very much reflects the ethos we aspire to here in 'lil ol' Dumfries.. though we do tend to get permission from the Council/land owner before starting on any of our projects. 'If kids grow kale, they eat kale'... 'growing your own food is like printing you own money'.... 'get gasta with your shovel'... Do take 10 minutes to have a watch/listen.A guerrilla gardener in South Central LAwww.ted.com
Ron Finley plants vegetable gardens in South Central LA -- in abandoned lots, traffic medians, along the curbs. Why? For fun, for defiance, for beauty and to offer some alternative to fast food in a community where "the drive-thrus are killing more people than the drive-bys."
