Big shout to Sonya from the Last Gang In Town for letting us know about Ron Finley the Guerilla Gardener from L.A.
Fed up with the lack of fresh edibles in his neighbourhood in South LA (he had to travel some way away just to get some organic tomatoes) he planted some veg in the empty bed outside his house. Rather than being chuffed that someone cared for where they lived, the local authorities done him for “gardening without a permit” (how bonkers is that?). This spurred him onto starting food growing projects and getting people in the local community into the old veg growing bug. Read more about his gardening exploits and all the good he’s doing. In his own words “We gotta flip the script on what a gangsta is — if you ain’t a gardener, you ain’t gangsta.” Big up Ron!
**UPDATE** We’ve just heard from Ron and he told us his favourite method of getting rid of those damn slugs and snails is the old school Beer trap!
