Ep.49 Enriching Urban Communities through Gardening
Good food should not be just for the well-heeled. It should be for everybody. Everybody should be able to eat healthy. There's no reason why you shouldn't. And that's why I want people to at least start growing their food and start doing it collectively with your neighbors because what you're doing is creating community and safety.
In one of our favorite episodes yet, we sit down with Ron Finley, self-proclaimed “Gangsta Gardener”, to discuss his incredible work in turning food deserts into “food forests”, through urban farming via The Ron Finley Project. In this conversation, we discuss how access to healthy food is a fundamental human right and how individuals can make small steps to change our own health, as well as the health of the planet. Ron’s moving message will inspire you to re-think about how you interact with nature in order to live a more beautiful and harmonious life.
