Ron Finley

Ron Finley is an artist, designer, and gardener based in Los Angeles, CA. In 2010, he planted a garden on a neglected area of dirt owned by the City of Los Angeles. When he was cited for gardening without a permit, he started a petition with fellow green activists, demanding the right to garden and grow food in his neighborhood (the laws have now been changed because of Finley's action). His work is the subject most recently of the documentary film, Can You Dig This.
