In these dark days of Covid-19 we all need to hear about things that inspire us.... this inspired me!! It's an article about Ron Finlay, a resident of Los Angeles, who has set about revolutionising attitudes to gardening in inner city areas. Many groups of volunteers in Bolton are doing very similar things!!
There is also a "Ted Talk" on YouTube which is wonderful; to hear it you can click on the highlighted words "Ted Talk" in the article, or click on the second link below.
(Note: you may get this problem ....When you click to play the video YouTube tries to make you set up "Recommended ideas, straight to your Inbox", then, after 15 seconds moves on to a different video entitled "My suberversive garden plot". If you click the Back arrow it will finally take you back to the Gangsta Gardening video. Just one of those YouTube things..... please persevere!
