Gangster gardener Ron Finley
I always wondered why there weren’t any fruit trees growing randomly in the streets. Why is the only place you can buy an apple in the store? Plant a tree, and it will give fruit for free for ever. Isn’t this weird? It’s like the farmers or supermarkets have a patent on growing food.
Guerilla gardening is a global trend. More and more people start to grow their own food and make the city a better place to live in. With a little creativity of vision, and willingness to get our hands dirty, we can remake spaces defined by asphalt and dead grass into productive places of beauty. Rooftops are also a beautiful place to grow your own food!
