Gangster Gardener

I see so much progress and beauty every day.

It is pure truth and joy to connect with the soil instead of swinging through concrete jungles.  I spoke with an Italian man who is inspired to donate some of his unused farmland to the local community to farm in plots.  The joy of growing vegetables and fruits is an ordinary miracle, healthy for our bodies and spirits.  It is also a joy for the planet and contributes to the growing consciousness of what is right, noble and good.

For 10 minutes of hilarious inspiration, here is an entertaining TED talk by Ron Finley, Gangster Gardener.  From South Central LA.   Trade guns for spades.
