Ron Finley sparked a movement with one simple but determined decision: He turned a dried-up strip of land on a curbside in L.A. into a vegetable garden. He didn’t realize then that it would lead to a warrant for his arrest, but he fought back, helped get laws changed, and inspired others to see the transformational value of gardening and its power to change communities. Now the artist, designer, and avid gardener is teaching you how to change the world, one green space at a time, starting with your own home. Learn how to plant, grow, and maintain a thriving garden no matter where you live.

• Creating a garden in any home

• Ideas for building community through gardening
• When to plant
• Growing herbs, greens, legumes, and sweet potatoes
• Creating planters with common household items
• Composting and improving soil

    Much needed word…. I’m a new plant parent

  2. cyndi egold on April 27, 2021 at 12:00 am

    I plant everything in containers, garden boxes, etc., and Tower Gardens – we haven’t grown in quite sometime because our yard has a plethora of wildlife — squirrels, rats, bunnies and they get into everything. What do you do about that? I miss my garden so much. I love your style!!!

    This man just showed us all it doesn’t take a brain scientist to make a garden

  6. Stevey Irwin 'RAWMMA Hair Analyst' on April 27, 2021 at 12:05 am

    I honestly f*cking love gardening! My big tip is to stay consistent, even if you fail one season, you just made it 10x easier for the next season. I think people get overwhelmed and quit, gardening is a marathon, not a sprint, enjoy it, make mistakes!

  10. Frank McCloy on April 27, 2021 at 12:10 am

    I show Mr. Finley’s TedTalk about starting his guerrilla gardening revolution to my communication students. He is inspirational, and a real wake up call to everyone. He is positivity in action. My only wish is that I lived and taught in CA so I could invite Mr. Finley in to one of my classes because he is such a force of action that it would truly be awe inspiring to meet the man in person. So many of my students have thanked me for showing Mr. Finley’s talk because they were so moved by his words and his ACTIONS. The more people learn of Mr. Finley the better we all, and the world would be.

    This must be the most effective YouTube ad I’ve ever seen. After 3 seconds I realized that this man could sell me anything.

  12. MsFreethepeople on April 27, 2021 at 12:12 am

    I went searching for this channel. No stumble across here!

  13. skojig oquist on April 27, 2021 at 12:12 am

    I love the guy but please.
    How can comport be sexy?
    I hear the sexmaniac American in here. Everything is sexy for you guys – cars -flowers -garden and even dogs cats childtwn and – compost.
    I find it outrageous and if I were him I would use a different adjective.
    Ps. No trolling.

  15. Lsa F on April 27, 2021 at 12:16 am

    I just finished watching his masterclass. It was awesome. the only flaw: It leaves you wanting more of it.

  16. Caro Lune on April 27, 2021 at 12:18 am

    If I had the money I would take these classes for sure. Every guerilla gardener needs this energy.

  17. Aja Blue on April 27, 2021 at 12:20 am

    Natural herbs have cured so many illness that drugs and injection can’t cure. I’ve seen the great importance of natural herbs and the wonderful work they have done in people’s lives. i read people’s testimonies online on how they were cured of HERPES, HIV, diabetics etc by Dr Agbonifo herbal medicine, I contacted the doctor because i know nature has the power to heal. I was diagnosed with HSV but I have been completely cured after using Dr Agbonifo Herbal Medicine.

    God Bless you Ron Finley!

  26. AscendantStoic on April 27, 2021 at 12:27 am

    Now that’s a role model if I have ever seen one, people underestimate the independence of being able to grow your own food.

  27. Sandy Lumbermill diy on April 27, 2021 at 12:28 am

    Such a strong, inspirational video. TFS, can’t wait to dig in, xoxo

  28. Sandy Zio on April 27, 2021 at 12:30 am

    Great stuff Ron! Love it! Keep teaching! We should all be growing our own food wherever possible. Not much to it. Plant it, water it, and let God do the rest. 🙂 Have a great day!

  29. Sophie Ha on April 27, 2021 at 12:31 am

    Just saw you today on the Ellen show with Tiffany Haddish. Great applause to you and to Tiffany also. Gardening is definitely the way to go, and container vegetable gardening can yield some very good results. I agree with everything you said and also am so glad that you are influencing and inspiring people to grow some of their own food. It is true, youcan grow a lot of very excellent produce on a small plot of land, as long as you have good soil, water, sunshine and air. Thank you, thank you, thank you. You are a great inspiration and really lifted up my mood by teaching and being on tv. And great thanks to Miss Tiffany also. A great, wise, wonderful woman. I will be signing up for the master class. Keep up the marvelous work.
