Today Finley’s mission is changing the composition of the soil in communities around the world through The Ron Finley Project. He envisions a world where gardening is gangsta, where cool kids know their nutrition, and where communities embrace the act of growing. 

Join your fellow undergraduates for lunch and an informal conversation with Ron Finley.

While at IU, Finley will participate in a conversation on Monday, April 2, at 4 p.m. in the Solarium at the Indiana Memorial Union. The event is free and open to the public. Sponsored by the Hutton Honors College, the conversation is part of the Many Worlds, One Globe series designed to highlight research and creative activities that connect global understanding with individual identity.


Event Registration Policy

HHC small-group programs labeled "SIGN-UP REQUIRED" have limited space, are open only to IU undergraduates, and require advance sign-up. You are welcome to bring friends. However, anyone who plans to attend an HHC small-group program must be an IU undergraduate and must sign up.

You may sign up for small group programs by filling out the form linked above.

CANCELLATIONS: If you must cancel your reservation, please email or phone Becca Creath (; 812-855-5296), but please try to do so in a timely fashion so that someone on the wait list can take advantage of the opportunity you must miss. We understand there are emergency situations; but in other cases, please let us know before the day of the program if you must cancel, as it is often difficult to reach those on the wait list on the day of a program.
