Today the LA City Council is set to vote on a motion that would allow residents to plant gardens on parkways. These small stretches of land between the sidewalk and curb are seen as fertile ground by urban gardeners.

Ron Finley is one such urban gardener. We introduced you to him a few months back, just before he gave a talk on guerilla gardening at the annual TED conference. Ron joins the show from his home in South Central LA.
