A few quotes from Ron Finley:
South Central Los Angeles [is the] home of the drive-thru and the drive-by. Funny thing is, the drive-thrus are killing more people than the drive-bys.
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.
