Join us for an opportunity to meet Ron Finley, well known to many of us as Los Angeles' Gangsta Gardener.
On Thursday, December 8th, at 7:30pm, RETREET will host a screening of “Can You Dig This” at The Texas Theatre to kickoff Rowlett RETREET, an effort to replant lost trees in the wake of the devastating tornado that struck Rowlett last year.
The film, hosted in partnership with Earth Day Texas as part of the TEDxSMU Film Series, features the work of Ron Finley, the world-famous Gangsta Gardener, who works to educate and empower residents of South Central LA to plant their own food. Mr. Finley, who will be in attendance, envisions a world where gardening is gangsta, where cool kids know their nutrition, and where communities embrace the act of growing, knowing and sharing the best of the earth’s fresh-grown food.
A Q&A with Mr. Finley will follow the screening. Do not miss this special opportunity!
