    What South Central, Mississippi, and all USA poorest neighborhoods have in
    common? Toxic man made FOOD and LIQUOR STORES killing 1-million adults

    time for the Garden Guerillas to plant the seeds for farmasuitickle . . .
    man, that ended up being a strange word. . started with FARMACY, for fruit
    stand. Like lets bring it on, this spring with Alice Waters from San
    Fransisco , Jamie Oliver on food, and Michelle in the White House skipping
    us through all it takes . . you know you could plant some cute FARMACY
    signs on your xity sidewalk plots, have fun with it?

    Could growing your own food save your health and the health of others?
    Maybe the “Gangster Gardner” revolution will save healthcare?

    nasty ignorant,greedy,egotistical world..especially the young western
    generation, which are growing up to perceive untalented Kim kardashina and
    them other booty pop,rap bomboclat ,hippidy hop lame little wayne
    desacrating young minds and making millions for their
    blatant,publicity…sad that they are seein and even worshipped as
    mentors and talented people.. people like Ron are the ones i should see on
    tv making millions for doing such selfless ,simple thoughtful acts…god

    The ‘authorities’ are as threatened by this activity as they are by the
    idea of people using their own methods of barter and exchange – they don’t
    get a cut so they crack down on it like the jealous parasites they are,
    hence all the crackdowns on gardens all over the US.?

  22. Eriq Devine says:

    Check this out. The dude so reminds me of you. Not just cause he’s
    black…lol. Let’s grow some food in your back yard and sell it at the
    office. ?

  23. Maureen Devlin says:

    Amazing, inspiring–the way the world should be.

  24. Kenneth Otieno says:

    best talk ever, the guy was himself…. no jargon, no mind boggling
    researches. Just himself. See how it has worked!!

  25. genericity says:

    the reason they don’t want lower classes having access to land where they
    can grow food is to keep you dependent on the resources they “provide”
    you.. growing your own food means they can’t enslave you, why would you
    need to do what someone else tells you for the rest of your life, just to
    get a wage, if you had free access to everything you need? that’s why they
    have police just ITCHING to crack your skull if you even dare go anywhere
    near unused land.. it’s the only way to keep slavery going
