Mike will be chatting with Ron Finley, known as the “Gangsta Gardener”, and creator of the Ron Finley Project and . Ron is a man who will not sit still and watch a problem take root. Having grown up in the South Los Angeles food prison, Ron is familiar with the area’s lack of fresh produce. He knew what it’s like to drive 45 minutes just to get a fresh tomato.

In 2010, he set out to fix the problem. Ron planted vegetables in the curbside dirt strip next to his home. And quietly, started a revolution.
