What you'll learn and discuss

“Gardens to me represent freedom…We are supposed to inspire each other to wake up and realize what’s truly important.” -Ron Finley

When Ron Finley first grew a garden on a curbside dirt strip, he got cited—and then a warrant was issued for his arrest. He fought back, got the laws changed, and started a movement. Now the community activist and self-proclaimed “Gangster Gardener” is teaching you how to grow your own food, keep your plants alive, and find beauty and freedom in gardening no matter the size of your space.

Watch this 10-part masterclass and learn and be inspired to find your inner Gangster Gardener. Then join Janell Wehr, Master Horticulturist, in a discussion about where to start, best practices, gardening myths and finding your local gardening community. Start planting a revolution.
