Ron Finley

Ron Finley is a man that took a surprising medium and created not only art, but a solution to a problem that he saw was haunting his local community. Ron is constantly bombarded by empty lots, liquor stores, and fast food, which finally made him develop a solution. If he couldn’t find healthy food in a food desert than he would plant gardens and make his own using the empty dirt plots in front of his house. Ron even fought the city so that he could do this and now he is a part of an organization that plants gardens around the community. I believe that it is amazing for an artist to find a way to improve not only his lifestyle, but the lifestyle of others just by applying his love for gardening, especially in a place like South Central Los Angeles.
