“I have witnessed my garden become a tool for the education, a tool for the transformation of my neighborhood. To change the community, you have to change the composition of the soil. We are the soil… Gardening is the most therapeutic and defiant act you can do, especially in the inner city. Plus, you get strawberries. ”

~Ron Finley, guerilla gardener, South Central LA
