Inspirational words from urban gardening renegade Ron Finley!
I love watching this piece! I have watched it so many times and could watch it another hundred! I love what Ron has to say about people participating in their own food production and how revolutionary it is now! Take a listen! Here are some of my favorite quotes from him:
“To change a community, you have to change the composition of the soil…we are the soil”
“Growing your own food is like printing your own money”
“Gardening is the most therapeutic and defiant act you can do, especially in the inner city. Plus, you get strawberries.”
“If kids grow kale, kids eat kale. If they grow tomatoes, they eat tomatoes. But when none of this is presented to them, if they’re not shown how food affects the mind and the body, they blindly eat whatever you put in front of them.”
Wherever you are in your personal journey toward clean living and local food, thank you for joining me in mine. I look forward to sharing it with you.
