Gangsta gardener

Hosted by

Artist and community activist Ron Finley says it’s easier to find liquor and fried chicken in South LA than nutritious meals made from fresh, local ingredients: “The drive-thrus are killing more people than the drive-bys.” Finley is determined to change this, one neighborhood garden at a time. After you listen to Evan’s conversation with the “gangsta gardener,” watch Finley’s TED Talk from 2013 and tune into his interview with Frances Anderton on KCRW’s “Design and Architecture,” about the fight to save his garden.
