Ron Finlay “FASHION INNOVATOR. MANIC COLLECTOR. RENEGADE GARDENER. VISIONARY. COMMUNITY ACTIVIST.” quoted from his website It is people like Ron Finlay who inspire me! I just found out about him via a New York Times article here I post photos on my Shibori textile themed tumblr of plants and gardens because it is all interrelated… just as Ron Finlay knows. What I love is that Ron Finlay is a fashion designer too! check out the links… it’s worth it. TED TALK | Ron Finlay “Ron Finley plants vegetable gardens in South Central LA — in abandoned lots, traffic medians, along the curbs. Why? For fun, for defiance, for beauty and to offer some alternative to fast food in a community where “the drive-thrus are killing more people than the drive-bys.”” quoted from the Ted website link above.
