Ron Finley: A guerilla gardener in South Central LA


TED

Published on Mar 6, 2013

Ron Finley plants vegetable gardens in South Central LA — in abandoned lots, traffic medians, along the curbs. Why? For fun, for defiance, for beauty and to offer some alternative to fast food in a community where “the drive-thrus are killing more people than the drive-bys.”

The Future Of Food: Is There An Urban Answer?


WGBHForum

Published on Apr 7, 2016

Climate change has forced us to rethink our options about many things, including how and where we grow our food. James Miner, Principal of urban design and planning at Sasaki Associates in Watertown, has focused much of his practice on creating more sustainable communities for future generations. Jessie Banhazl, founder and CEO of Green City Growers, helps to change people’s perception of what is possible through her own rooftop farming revolution, growing fresh food in the most unlikely places. Miner, who lectures and writes extensively on how local food can be used to promote economic development, and Banhazl, who uses her work to prove that sustainable agriculture can be both healthy and profitable, discuss their opinions on the future of agriculture in an age where finding sustainable solutions for growing healthy food is paramount.
