I visited Ron Finley’s fundraiser on MLK Day, then went to the parade.

Ron is famous in Los Angeles for “urban gardening.” In short, urban gardening is using the small strips of unused land in front of a house or building.

The Ron Finely project needs your help. I stand here today, January 16 giving as much cash as I can financially handle in an effort to help this project stay in its current location.

The story is all too familiar. Investor buys building and pushes tenant out unless tenant can pay in full to purchase the property. RFP needs 500k.

Now 500k seems like a lot to keep a garden going but what Ron has done is revolutionary and more importantly, creates a teaching space for anyone to learn to grow their own fresh food.

If you have time today, please head over and donate.
