Change the Composition of the Soil

August 18, 2015

Ron Finley: gardener/artist

Ron Finley is an artist and a gardener. He is committed to making a difference and encouraging people to take back their health by planting their gardens where space is available. People come together and plant gardens, sometimes in spaces that are not used by anything or anyone else. He is known as the guerilla gardener in South Central LA. He is an inspiration! As you start your school year this week (being from the County) or getting ready for your first day back, consider how you can “change the composition of the soil” using the arts as the vehicle. If you are engaged in something that y0u want to share please send me an email at
